I'm looking for some good computer speakers to buy? Nothing super cheap but nothing crazy expensive either. I'm looking for speakers w/ a subwoofer ofc and one that can give "good sound" when I'm listening to music. It doesnt matter about gaming since I use headphones for gaming, but yeah music I guess.

My price range is $20 to $40. And depending on how great the speakers are, I might spend more.

So, any suggestions? :) Thank you!

$40 aint much for worthwhile speakers. I use NAD amp / Mission speakers for the living room PC, for the desktop / laptops I have a mixture of Creative GigaWorks T20 Series II or GigaWorks T40 Series II - both are pretty good for gaming / music duties when close to the desk and are reasonably accurate in sound. The T20's are probably available for a little over $40 in Christmas sales?

Ooooohhh that's true. Well I wouldn't mind spending a bit more if it's as good as you say.

But I mean, any speakers are good enough for me if you have any other suggestions? Like just those 2 speakers + subwoofer type of system

At that price, I'd go for quality of construction and electronics over number of speakers. The 20's are actually very capable and do a cracking job, I'd happily put them up over any $20-$40 2.1 system for volume and the sound quality is very good for desktop speakers.

Or the T15's are a bargin with bluetooth as well. Not quite as refined, but I had a set of those for 3 years and they were impressive enough to persuade me to buy the other T20's & T40's.

The T15's will be cheaper if you are really tight on budget - as I said still plenty powerful, but not quite as smooth as the '20s, but you do get Bluetooth on 'em.
