If you plan on getting a subwoofer in the future, most likely you'll be configuring the crossover to where the speakers start to roll off. So your sub will be able to fill in the lower bass. I would think a 5" would be fine.
Consider what Transmaniacon said. If there are passive speakers you know you like, the Emotiva mini-x a-100 amp would work well. I run Energy V5.1s with an HK 3390 receiver. I would put my setup up against any pair of $500 power monitors. More colored sound, of course.
Also, what are you using for a source to run to the speakers? Motherboard audio that comes built in can be pretty meh.
