    Need speakers

    I'm looking for new speakers for my sys but i'm rather cash strapped and i'd like a 5.1 system, i've the choice between the creative Inspire 5.1 5100 or the Hercules XPS510. Any idea which one performs the best and what kind of connection they use?

    the hercules is a bit more powerful and expensive but the control are on the subwoofer (which will be on the ground) and that is a big drawback

    Why not get the Logitech 640s I've read nothing but good stuff about them, only 67 bucks at newegg... Also if you look at the reviews on newegg our own Kunaak has a review up on em.... and the controls are on the center channel speaker!

    They look nice even if they are a bit more expensive than the other
    Can someone tell me if they do sound better than the two other?
    (i can't buy at newegg because i'm in france)

    those 640s look pretty nice, and a good price too.

    antipop, what speakers are available to you, and how much do they cost?

    the Creative Inspire 5.1 5100 (90€] or the Hercules XPS510 (95€), maybe the 640 (116€)is they're really better or the the inspire 5300 (114€)

    Oh man I love these speakers!!! MP3's have never sounded soooo good!! DVD surround is crisp and clear and since I dont have a 5.1 system on my TV I'm hearing sounds in Ronin that I have never heard before... THe bass from the sub is amazing as well. I highly recommend these speakers!!

    I have a plug named center in my card but the plug is (i think it's the name) RCA and the jack is a regular jack. Does someone know if a converter exists?

    i'll look at my electronic shop if they have any because that would be a lose not to use the speaker at their full potential
