    I am looking to buy some 5.1 speakers for my PC, can you guys recommend the best speakers for around £60?

    Creative Inspire T6060 5.1 Speakers - Retail (SP-060-CL)

    Price: £42.75 (£50.23 Including VAT at 17.5%)

    It's probably what I'm going to get, unless anyone can find anything better for the price.

    Logitech X530 are worth looking at. Never used the T6060 though so can't compare the two sets.

    i recommened not getting pc speakers. get an amp and 5.1 speaker package. Or go into richer sounds or another audio shop and ask them about 5.1 systems

    edit -oh sorry, you said budget, didnt see that.

    Heh, I'm not getting them anymore. I'm going after a 2.1 set for £50. You'll get much better 2.1 speakers than 5.1s for £50-£60.

    Yes, definately spend your budget on a 2.1 set. My brother has the T6060s and doesn't like them at all, not reccomended. Otherwise, save up more for a good 5.1 set, you won't get sound quality on a 5.1 set for £50.
