Default New Speakers!!

I got my new speakers today, and they are great, logitech z-640s. Just need to get some more music too, and a good movie to watch in surround sound, but for games, its great so far.

Well, just so you know, 99% of music isn't in surround sound.

Good speakers are really nice to have though. Pictures??

Once you get something with a subwoofer, you never go back to regular speakers. I love my 200 watt 2.1 Klipsch system. A sound card will help a bit with sound quality too.

That depends. Some sound cards have the option to run Dolby Pro Logic 2 which will convert Stereo music to 5.1, and rather cleverly too in my opinion.

If you don't have the sound card with the decoder to do that, Power DVD with full options has Dolby Pro logic 2 built in. Though, thats a bit awquad to run music with...still, great sound.

I want to get 'me hold of a set of Logitechs!
Enjoy

Yeah, I've got the Z-5500's, they're great. Huge difference upgrading from a $100 pair of Shure headphones. The bass literally rocks the house.

As for the Dolby Pro Logic, I just got the Razer Barracuda AC-1, and it's awesome. Huge difference from onboard sound, plus there's a ton of settings to tinker with to get the sound just right. It's actually got Dolby Pro Logic IIx, which can upconvert stuff as far as to a 7.1 surround setup.
Now that I think of it, I should post a review...

i think you should get a new sound card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102003
that one is a good price for the sound quality you get but if you have more you could also get this for a REALLY good "3D" experience

Personally I don't see the need for 5.1 speakers. I don't have the money nor the space for them. 2.1 is good enough, or better yet, a nice set of comfy and great sounding headphones.

Ew. Creative makes good sound cards, but their drivers suck. It takes them forever just to patch things.

^^ I totally agree. It is the same thing as with Nvidia. Great products, bad drivers. Maybe not bad, but not frequent enough.

Creative drivers suck. You could try a Turtle Beach.

Try Auzentech. Their Auzen X-Fi Prelude soundcard uses the same X-Fi chipset and technology but the drivers are WAYYY better than Creatives. Turtle Beach is decent for the price.

Yeah. Before it was ATI with their drivers, but they've definately stepped up with their Catalyst drivers. NVIDIA has good video cards but the Forceware drivers suck now. The last great Forceware driver was the Forceware 66.93 drivers.
