    Well those speakers are generally for people that like good sound rather then just "loud" noises but it's also very capable noise-wise so you should be fine.

    thats a real neat sound card , specially for gaming, u need to go through the owner manual to learn what all the options do , the card can really perform

    Logitechs Z5500 are very popular and famous for strong bass but there are 2 things to consider:

    1) some people complain about shielding issues with these speakers, see this for reference:

    2) these are digital speakers in that they have built in digital to analog converter. Your sound card also has such converter so you are paying twice for the same stuff.

    I would rather recommend analog speaker set from Teufel, Klipsch or perhaps Creative - especially if you gonna get their sound card. I mean most likely they test their sound cards with their speakers so you should not have any issues.

    X-Fi is no brainer, the best card out there. Have one myself. Paid lots more then what it sells for now - it can be found for less then $100, damm..
