Hi, I really need help.

I am looking for a 2.1 system for a 8.5'x12' bedroom with the possibility of buying a receiver and extra satellites for 5.1 or 7.1.

My budget is around £150 ($300)

I want to connect them to my computer I plan to build with a Asus Xonar HDAV Deluxe Sound Card. They would be used for general computer use, gaming and HD Video/blu Ray Watching.

I am still at school, so bear in mind my budget is quite low. I can't afford 5.1 atm and I would rather build my own out of separate speakers anyway.

If I want to hook them up to an AV Receiver do I need passive or an active subwoofer

Thank you for all advice

I would skip the subwoofer and buy the best pair of bookshelf speakers you can.

KEF is replacing the IQ3 and IQ1 in their line, maybe you could find a pair of those to audition.
