Now i've got a limit of probably around AUD$100 (about USD$93).
I'm struggling on deciding between a decent quality (loud - nice sound quality) 2.1, or a cheapish 5.1
My arguments for each are this:
2.1 - I listen to a lot of music, loud music. I'm in a band so i'm very picky with my sound and I like quality.
5.1 - Games. I want to hear someone behind me if they're actually behind me, not wait to get shot and see where the red is on the monitor. I play a lot of games (Recently - Crysis, Elder Scrolls IV - Oblivion, FEAR and Quake 4) and i'm presuming this will be my highest priority.
I AM leaning more towards 5.1, but i'm not sure on what to be looking for. This is what i've mainly been looking at. Also these maybe.
Any suggestions or tips on what I should be looking for? Any advice would be appreciated.
