But remember that the sound in a store is nothing of that of which you'll experience at home.

Actually, most computer speaker setups are near-field, which means what you hear is largely unaffected by the room acoustics. If you setup a system in a small room (in a semi decent location) you will see some extra bass output and extension, but over all it should be fairly comparable.

I just bought some Mackie MR5 studio monitors for my bedroom setup. Way out of your price range, but if you really care about SQ, you need real speakers, with separate tweeters, good crossovers, and proper cabinets. I have owned both the Z-2200, X-230(great speakers for the price), and have experience with many others.

What genre's of music will you be playing with these? Will you be using them for movies? How large is the room they will be in? Need this information.

I got the same deal at Staples about a year ago. Great speakers and Sub. I love them.
