I've used a pair of Acoustic Research Powered Partners ( AV570 ) since the late 1980's for strictly 2.0 PC audio. I bought a new pair in 1994 and sold my original pair for the SAME price I paid for them. I've tried lots of other speakers, including Altec Lansing, Logitech, and Creative top 2.0 sets, and keep going back to the AR speakers. They are no longer being made but there might still be some on eBay. I just haven't found any better computer speakers that are similar in size.
The Airmotiv are nice but they are too big for a typical 26" x 48" PC desk, especially if the PC is on the desk along with a 24" to 30" panel. It is going to come down to how much desk real estate one has.
