    Well jeremy since you have invested so much on the new sound card we will recommend you to buy a 5.1 surround channel because a decent 2.1 configured speaker without thx would cost you above $ 40-50 so by adding a few $30-40 you can upgrade to a 5.1 and get excellent sound and thearitical experience.
    Otherwise you can always go with altec lansing vs2221 or a logitech x230 in 2.1 configuration.

    You bought a great sound card and now your gonna cripple it with a cheap set of stereo speakers? ..no,no..no. Would you buy a great graphics card and put a cheap monitor on it?..NO..because you would be ruining the experience. I would really suggest using headphones until you can save enough to get atleast the X-530's. If you don't you will be sorry and you'll never know what that card really sounds like. The X-530's are so cheap and so good for the price that there is no reason not to buy them. I hope this helps..

    You can grab the x-530's from ascent.co.nz for $127.13 atm, they are pretty much the same as my Z-640's, but im upgrading to Z-5500's soon (hopefully) :rock:

    Yes to all of your questions. I've had the x-530's for awhile but I just got a Audigy 2 ZS and they absolutely rock in every way. They sound good for acoustic classical music and some death metal. I would recommend them ten times over especially for an X-fi lol. Good luck.

    Z-640's is what I am using with my X-fi but I feel they are holding me back. Still for the price you cant beat the 640's or 530's. You can get the 530's at Sam's club for under 60 bucks.

    THX is a set of standards that a piece of audio equipment must meet to be considered THX certified. The X-530's are not THX certified..
