Looking for some advice; I just built my first PC in December, and am loving it so far, except I'd love some high-end sound to enhance the experience of both gaming and music. I listen to alot of dubstep and DnB, so bass is a must.

I'm completely new to how speakers and sound works, and right now I use the speakers built into my TV (I use my 26" TV as my monitor)

Current System (not sure if you need this info, better safe than sorry):
- 12GB Corsair Vengance DDR3 RAM @ 1600Mhz
- AMD Phenom II X4 B65 Processor (OC'D) ~ 4.0GHz
- Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB
- Cooler Master Elite 430 Mid-Tower ATX Case
- Corsair CX600 600w PSU
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Need to know any more, just ask! :D 

Any suggestions on speakers? :sweat: 
I have a £100-150 budget.

There is no high end sound for that price, unless you purchase it second hand.
For high end sound, you will connect a pair of powered studio monitors, and a subwoofer.
OR you will connect an external amplifier, to the audio out, of the computer.
Then that amplifier drives two conventional hi fi speakers.

Ah, thanks for the advice.
How about surround-sound headsets - possible with my budget? Suggestions? (:
