Complete noob looking for Stereo Monitor recommendations

I am very new to the audio market and I currently have the Corsair Sp2500 and am looking to get serious with audio. I would like to keep the monitors under $500 but I have no real budget. I want to use these with my computer in a small 11'x13' room. I have no other audio gear such as a receiver/DAC/amp either, so recommendations on those would also be appreciated as well. Just recommend me a whole set-up. I have a quality 18" subwoofer that I would like to pair these with but I really only turn that on while watching movies or listening to music, so getting monitors with a decent bass output would be appreciated. I was recommended the JBL Studio 530s. I have also researched into the Kef Q300s, Emotiva Airmotiv 6s, JBL LSR308s, and the Behringer Truth B3031A and these are all very possible options that I would like to narrow down.

I am very happy with my B&W 685s in a similarly sized room. They can't be too close to the wall but are a nice speaker for the money. Audition speakers if you can.

Those are all solid recommends, you can not go wrong with any of those. Since you don't have an AVR, just get some powered monitors. I would be looking at the Mackie MR8 mk3 or JBL LSR308. These will allow a lower crossover point to the sub if you so desire, because they have very good bass output.
