Best budget 2.0 or 2.1 speaker sys. for computer?

Ive got a new computer comming and I want to get a decent 2.0 or 2.1 speaker setup. What are some recommendations for say, 50-75 bucks or less. It will be for 70%music/30%movies. Gotta be kinda small, too.

I bought a set of Creative's I-Trigue 3500 speakers a few weeks ago. They sound ok. Honestly, I was a little disappointed in hearing them after reading the rave reviews. CompUSA had them on sale for $70 a few weeks ago.

For 39.99 I find it hard to beat the cambridge soundworks.

and they can be had for 29.99 quite often.

That's what I have, except in white. When I got them a couple years ago they were $50. Well worth it.

I have a pair of Altec Lansings, sounds pretty good..the low tones on it are amazing..I'm all the way in the kitchen..the volume is around medium..and I can hear a nice bassline all the way over there..

They sound pretty good...not near a real system, but good..around $30 at store

For computer speakers, I tend to want to go either ultra-cheapo or top of the line.

For cheapo setups, I try to dig up a pair of old Yamaha YST-M15s. I've always felt that these provided surprisingly good sound for the $80 they sold for when new. You can find them on eBay for $10 nowadays which makes them a great bargain if they haven't been abused.

The Logitech Z2200's are probably the best all around 2.1's right now. If you only listen to music, I might choose something else, but if you play games and watch movies/tv, these are great, especially if you like to crank up the volume. They run around $130, though.
