Good gaming speakers?

  1. Hi, I'm looking for some good gaming speakers. I was going to get the Microlabs solo 6c but they are a bit fat to go on my desk. SO I thought I'd go for the 7C's instead as they are thinner but it turns out they aren't that good if you are really close to them ie they are on your computer desk. Plus they are still slightly humongous.

    What speakers do you recommend, I would like to pay around the price of the SOLO 6C's.

    Thanks

    Edit: I'll be using a Soundblaster Z with these speakers. I'm thinking of going with the Creative Gigaworks T40 Series II.

    Those are audiophile speakers, not gaming. You want something with a subwoofer for the best impact in games.

    Consider a Creative 5.1 system... if not, 2.1. They are a good brand.

    But having a sub is so annoying, I don't really have room for one. I just want two good sounding speakers not too large speakers. Is that not possible?

    Sure, powered monitors. But they aren't made for gaming.
