I am looking to buy in the future a NICE LOOKING and with BEST SOUND for the money 2/2.1 system and Sound Card. 5.1 is overkill for my desk plus I got a 7.1 Cinema System already and 7.1 Logitech G930 wireless headphones.
I saw some recommend Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 for the speakers but the reviews are mixed like low end bass is bad(crap I don't know what they mean ). Edit:I just been to BestBuy and listened to this Klipsch 2.1 ProMedia and I would say Bass sounds a little "closed" like cheap subwoofers enclosed in a plastic cover even when I compared to the Logitech Z506, but they had bad satellites.
One thing please don't recommend me Logitech or Creative, I just don't like those brands and their speakers are ugly(no offence to anyone).
As for sound card I have no idea, I had a Creative XFI Xtreame Gamer but their software was shxxxt and buggy.
Please recommend me some speaker system and a sound card to go with that wouldn't break the bank. Max for both 300$.
PS: Design and some bright colors would be nice.

Idk what others are going to say about this, but for a 2.1 setup, i don't believe a sound card would bring much value. Using the integrated chipset should be enough to handle the job
So Asus Essence Stx for sound card, how about some decent speakers for my price? I am really leaning towards 2 monitor/bookshelf speakers as I don't listen to music on my computer and for games I think I wont need much much bass for a separate subwoofer ?!
Well that depends on the music you listen to firstly, and secondly if your a "bass head" like myself. Any 2.1 system is going to begin lacking below Hz simply because a speaker below 6" in can't really move air like it needs to. (Hence why the Kilpsch 2.1 systems are lacking in the -low- lows.)
Cambridge Soundworks has always been really good in the relm of sound quality. And unlike other manufacturers that have gone the route of "high excursion 6 ' ' drivers" to cut costs they do still offer setups with 8" subs.
