Looking to spend about £35 on speakers, and probably the same for a sound card.
Will probably go for the Altec Lansing 221 speakers, as recommended in PC Advisor, but the sound card recommended there (Feb 2004) I can't find anywhere - the Hercules PCI GameSurround. Is this the same as the Fortissimo III?
What other options do people recommend? I use my PC for music and games, but I really am not bothered about sound for the games.
And graphics cards? If I get one, it will have to be a PCI card (no AGP slot) - what do people recommend there?
Ive got some on order, I just thought for the price I dont have much to loose! I at the moment have some Creative 5300 and am keep to be rid of them. Im my experience, as i know many would aggree the only way to get a real idea of speakers is to hear them. Take a trip to PC world or elsewhere and hear them working - what is said speakers do and what they actually do is vastly different!
