I just purchased a pair of these 85$ during the columbus day sale.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882117406

I plan on hooking these up to my computer, so what would be the best way to go about that? I don't know where to start.

I'm not really sure what the best amplifier would be for this, I have 2 of these speakers and they are each 130w max power and 6 ohms impedence. Since they will be hooked up in parallel does that mean I want 260W and 3ohms? I'm not really sure since this is my first passive speaker system so some help would be appreciated.

People suggest a cheap amp like the Lepai 2020 http://www.amazon.com/LP-2020A-Lepai-Tripath-Class-T-Amplifier/dp/B0049P6OTI/
but I feel like that would just damage the speakers.

Some input from more experienced people is appreciated!
 
If you have a pair of these (not 2 pair) then each speaker is connected to its own channel (left or right) and not in parallel. Assuming that your budget is low I would suggest that the best option would be a good used intergrated amplifier or stereo receiver. You can try Best Buy for a cheap new stereo receiver.
If you had the budget a new integrated amp like the Cambridge Audio Azur 351a, which has a USB input for your PC, would bypass your audio board and give you a big improvement in sound quality as well as being an great entry level unit to high end audio.
