In a month or so, I'm going to upgrade from my Epox 8k5a2+ motherboard AC97 audio and Microsoft Digital Sound System 80 to an ASRock 4Core Dual Sata2 motherboard with ALC888 7.1 Channel Audio.
On fixed income, my budget for this is tight, with new CPU, cooler, and memory- it's hard to squeeze in new speakers too. I've heard good things about the Logitech
x530 or x540 5.1 channel, about $60 for the x530's. Does anyone know about these speakers? Does 5.1 speakers play well 7.1 with output? Any thoughts?

I run an X530 setup on one of my rigs with an Audigy2, sound quality is actually pretty decent, especially for the price point. For gaming and playing MP3's etc etc, I would give them an 8 out of 10.

5.1 on a 7.1 won't cause any issues, just have to set up the driver for 5.1.

I pay $85 for my X-540 and it worth every penny. Using an X-Fi s/c thou.

All I'm hearing are good things about these speakers. Even a couple of people who quit using there home systems in favor of these. The only complaint there's been was the length of wires. That's easy to remedy.:)
I think I'm good to go for speakers. I've kept away from looking for a power supply until I had everything else pretty in the can. Time to break out the calculator!
