The Best Gaming Computer Speakers
Good speakers make your gaming experience more thrilling. (loud speaker image by Eray Haciosmanoglu from Fotolia.com)

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.

2.1 Speakers

The Logitech Z-2300 2.1 Speaker System 2.1 speaker set is versatile and easy to set up. The price is also fair: the system is priced as low as £70 (as of 2010). The M-Audio Studiophile AV40 Portable Desktop Speakers are another popular choice for gaming. Harmon Cardon Soundsticks, with their unique style and crystal-clear sound, even at high volumes, are also great for games. The Creative Labs I-Trigue 2.1 3300 system is another option, including a subwoofer and two speakers for as low as £44 (as of 2010).

5.1 Speakers

Logitech makes many popular 5.1 systems, such as the Z-5500. 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.

Best Value

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 Logitech S220 2.1 system, for example, includes a subwoofer and two high-quality speakers for under £19 (as of 2010). The Altec Lansing VS2621 2.1 and Altec Lansing XA2021 systems are another option for around £32 (as of 2010).
