Default Would like some recomendations for good gaming/movie speakers

Frist of I will tell you I know nothing about speakers.....so your techenical jargon wont mean anything to me. All I know is with Freq responce lower is beter. I am not into the whole 7.1 sround sound thing. Just someting small like 4.1 (if it exists) or 2.1 is good for me.
Ok now that is out of the way what spekers would you recomend for watching movies/gaming.

My System Specs

That's actually not true unless it's no BS high end professional equipment. I never trust any specifications on the boxes of lower end speakers, except maybe cord length.
Best way to find out which one is best is actually to go into an audio store and try the speakers out.

Some speakers may look great on paper, but the sound coming out may lack warmness, or the spectrum balance is off.

My guess is that you're going to hook them up to a computer. My recommendation would be either, M-audio AV40, Edifier S330D 2.1, or Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 system, and both are available at many retailers. (I'm not too big of a fan for Logitech Z2300s, but it's a good alternative)

More in-depth models are quite hard to find. You can visit Headfi.org for more user feedback on speakers and sorts.
Intel Core i7 930 D0 4.2ghz, Corsair XMS3 6X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 8-8-8-24, Xfire HD5870, Intel X-25M 34nm 80gb, Enermax Revolution85+ 1050W, Xonar D2X

E8400 4.0ghz, XFX 780i, Mushkin XP2 PC-6400, Antec Earthwatts 750W
