I am new to audio and head fi, and I need a new set of computer speakers. I found a couple high rated 2.1 sets on amazon, and was wondering which was the best. If none of these is sufficent for the price, my range is 40-60 bucks.

What do you think?
I will be listening mostly to electronic music (Monstercat), Rock, Pop, Accapella, Podcasts, and YouTube.

Problem solved. I actually found a pair of pinnacle bookshelve speakers from the 90's in my grandma's basement. Called 'em up, they said they would fix them for 120 bucks, and that anything like that now would be about 500 bucks  :)

There the PN5+ model. They were a pretty long run, from the late 80's to the late 90's.
 
I highly reccomend there costumer service as well. I called and got a real person, who directed me to another real person with no wait time. The guy only charged me for parts,  and said I lived nearby so shipping was free, gave me his desk number AND a home gmail address.
 
Thanks for replying to both my active posts :)
