What would be the best speakers for under $1000 for my computer that has a ASUS Xonar Essence STX sound card? I'm looking for a clear, colorful sound with a punchy bass. I'm going to be right next to my computer 99% of the time so I don't care if the sound doesn't travel that far. I'd prefer either 2.1 or 2.0 since I assume 5.1 would be lower quality speakers at this budget. On my computer I will be doing virtually everything from music, movies, and gaming.
Would it be a good idea to buy >$1000 2.0 speakers and then upgrade to a very good subwoofer when I have the money?
Edit: I'd prefer a speaker that is smaller than 13'' tall, 13'' deep, and 20'' wide since that is was my desk will fit.
Edit: Also, for the subwoofer, not too big since there is little space to put it. And what would be a good subwoofer to add on to a 2.0? Something like this? http://www.klipsch.com/kw-120-thx-subwoofer
