My 5yr old bose desktop speakers are on deaths door... Any suggestions for a speaker setup under $200?
I am using the integrated sound on my asus p6x58d premium (7.1?). I don't need to use all 7.1. a good 2.1 or 5.1 should do it.

Well for that price range 2.1 is the way to go imo.
I've listen to both Logitech sets 50+hrs and would recommend them.
Both are very good.
Another high-end 2.1 set
To get the best performance i would suggest a sound card.
Night and day difference from onboard imho.

If I go with the Logitech at around $150 is there a $50 sound card you would recommend?

Anything from Asus or Auzentech good warranties and decent drivers.
Creative has slipped alot in the last couple of years with their crappy drivers.

i own the 2.1 THX klipsch set davcon linked, they easily beat anything logitech or creative offer.

^+1 he's right i've heard them that's why i included them.
They are the best of the lot i linked.

So this begs the question... If i'm looking to spend no more than $200, do I go for the Klipsch speakers and run that from my mobo, or get the logitech and get the sound card?
