Suggestions on 2.1 Speakers.

Well i am in the market for 2.1 speakers. I want something that will sound good but isn't insanely expensive. Im going to use them for gaming and listening to music while on my computer or in my room. I have been looking at a few.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121122 - Those are a little on the expensive side.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836113138 - A few people I know have these and they seam pretty nice.

I say those Altec Lansings I have. The Logitech's seem overly expensive and my AL's have some awesome sound to them with great bass. The other 'cuter' AL's seem to be priced higher solely for their looks.
