PC analog audio jacks aren't the cleanest in the world and Bose don't make the best speakers in the world either. My advise would be to stay in the digital domain for as long as possible. Going from...

I think they would be fine in a smaller room. The Prime Satellite system at $1000 would be a decent starter system.
