I'm planning to build a new PC in a week. I'm hoping to get some good holiday deals on some of the hardware. What would be a good set of 2.1 speakers and sound card for around $500? I listen to all kinds of music - instrumental, female vocal heavy songs, rock, blues, alternative, music from the 90's! :D anything except hip hop. I also listen to a ton of Asian/Indian/Hindustani/ music as well. For sound card, I was thinking Asus xonar Essence ST. I could spend anywhere from $300 to $400 on speakers. Any help regarding this would be really great! Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
Bookshelf speakers recommendations are welcome too!
