I really need advice on what equipment I would need.

I would like a good quality set of 2.1 speakers. I am using them for my computer which is in my bedroom atm. I was looking at the Asus Xonar HDAV sound card which would be good for any decoding if I get 5.1 any time soon.
I've decided to use the analogue outputs from my sound card, so it will do the decoding.

I am on a tight budget of £100 around $150. I was looking at the Acoustic Energy Aego M system.

I would hopefully like to use the subwoofer and two front satellites as part of a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system in the future.

That is my scenario, now I have just a couple of questions
1. Which 2.1 system would you recommend at the moment

2. How would I add speakers, from my research if I wanted 5.1/7.1 I would need to connect all speakers to an amp or receiver as 2.1 systems will only have a 2.1 amp built into the subwoofer. If it is an active subwoofer where would I connect it to the PC sound card or the AV Receiver then the sound card.

Thank you for all replies
