ASUS P4C800E-Deluxe board with on-board audio

Beyond that, I don't know much about the capabilities
of that on-board audio, such as how many watts will
it comfortably support for speakers, etc.

(480W PSU)

Not looking for anything exotic, no "home theater"
or anything - just some decent plain stereo speakers
for a reasonable price - maybe in the range of $50
to $75 - if there ARE any "decent" speakers in that
price range (!) - mostly just for decent audio when
watching movie DVDs and music programs on TV,
and maybe an occasional music CD.

I'm basically aware of speaker frequency ranges
etc, but - - . I know there's good and there's junk
to be had.

And I'm not in a situation to be able to go listen
to any - will have to order online.

I'm on a job in a small town in Montana - need
I say more?

Hi. I think the best way to go on making a decision like this is to use Google to do some searching for product reviews. I have made a multitude of purchase decisions using this process. So far, none have gone wrong. So start searching for speakers. Find some in your price range and then look for reviews. You will be amazed what you will find. I bought a Logitech speaker system for my audio/video computer, has 1 woofer and 5 tweeters, sounds good to me and it cost about $49.00 at Sam's Club.

I looked at CNET and some other review sites.

Also got some replies from another Forum,
several recommended various Logitech systems.

Never thought of Sams Club(!)

Thanks for the lead (although I may have
already bought a Logitech system on ebay
for $30, but not as good a one as the one
you reference at Sams for not much more) -
got to go check.
