So I'm in the market of buying a decent 5.1 speakers around 100-250 range.
I'll be using them mostly for gaming with some music and movies on my ps3 and pc. I already have a few selections..

The logitech z5500
The onkyo ht-s3100
Pioneer HTP 2920

I was leaning towards z5500 before I saw the Onkyo and Pioneer sets at newegg but I'm not pretty sure if I can get a 5.1 surround using my ps3 with above selections. I notice they all have opticals but I just want to make sure. I don't have any experience to any of this product neither having a 5.1 set.(always been a 2.1 guy) Would I be better buying a complete set or buy the components separately like getting a decent receiver with hdmi to get "full" surround sound w/o expanding my budget range? I'm no audio geek but I definitely prefer the better sound and just want the best bang for my buck. Any help and advice would much appreciated. Thank you

Onkyo has better option of the three but Logitech will gives you more bass and easier to connect.

If it's my choice I will choose Onkyo where there’s more stuff I can connect.

i took the plunge and went to z5500 got them today. I don't know, for me they sound decent since I'm no audio enthusiast. This sets will do the trick for me. :) Thanks
