Hey
I was wondering what PC speakers to buy for under £100 and also a bit of advice to what I should look for in speakers for watching movies and whether surround sound is worth it at this price. I have a Toshiba 40" TV, however the HDMI connected to the TV from the PC starts crackling sometimes with audio so I'm looking for some speakers to solve it.

Cheers

The Logitech Z-506 speakers aren't too bad on a budget. I have the older model X-530 set, and have recommended them to alot of my gamer buddies that were on a budget as well. They were all super impressed with the X-530's, so I guess these are the newer model of them. The Z-506.

Thanks for the reply, so is it worth buying surround sound at this price or would it be better for general sound quality of just buying a set of normal non surround sound speakers?

Well honestly, you get what you pay for. These are probally the best you can get in that price range, and they are quite good for that price. 5.1 speakers are way better for games/movies than a regular set of speakers would be.

If you raise your budget, myself/others may be able to suggest better

Thanks again. How much more would I need to be spending to get a set better than these just for casual movie watching and occasional gaming use?
