What do I need to think about for a new speaker system?

18 Sep 2009
Hi, I'm a bit of a newbie and not really sure what exactly I need to consider if I'm going to get a new speaker system for my PC.
I've got a fairly old hi-fi so I thought rather than get a new one of those I'd upgrade my crap PC speakers and play radio/music off my PC instead. I like my music so I've got a fairly big budget.
But I'm not sure:
If a 5.1 system is such a big improvement on a stereo set-up.
If certain systems are only compatible with certain sound cards.
If the size of the room its in makes a big difference (it's a reasonably sized bed room)
