Gamers need speakers that make gaming more interactive and have better sound quality. Look for surround sound, a good amplification system and a low Total Harmonic Distortion level when choosing a speaker system for computer gaming. Less-expensive 2.1 systems, which have two speakers and a subwoofer, are sufficient for most games, but upgrading to a 5.1 sound system will provide more immersive sound.

Not only does this system have immersive, high-quality sound, but it can connect to your TV, video game console or MP3 player as well as to your PC. Wize.com also recommends the Logitech 5.1 X-540 and X-530 models. The Pixxo SH-8606 system is also a top choice for 5.1 systems, boasting multiple speakers for surround sound and an easy set-up.
If you want to enhance your gaming experience, but can't quite afford to pay top dollar, you can still find great bass, volume and sound quality at a low price.

The Altec Lansing VS2621 2.1 and Altec Lansing XA2021 systems are another option for around £32 (as of 2010).
