So many options I honestly have no idea where to begin looking...

Ok..so I currently have an old, and by old I mean a set of 2003 Altec Lansing 221 speakers. But I am about to redo my entire rig AND desk and want to up my game on my sound as well.

Am planning on dropping an ASUS Xonar Essence STX II in my new rig, which is primarily used for games, watching movies, and playing music through while I play my guitar. The Altec's aren't bad, but they aren't that good either.

I thought about getting the Audioengine 5+, but there is no sub with that, and also considered something like the Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 setup as well. But there are just so many damn choices, that I can't get a good idea what would be ideal for me.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Instead of the essence I'd go with the Schiit Fulla 2. Good quality amplifier and DAC with a preamp all for $99.
