Alright jack...

Heres what I'd like to do IDEALLY..

Get a 5.1, NICE sub and a receiver or whatever to power it.Id also like to be able to play music from my comp on it.

I really dont wanna build any boxes or anything like that,plus I dont have the resources to either.

I'd like to keep this under 300$ if possible

The Lytles would be a good choice.

ICIXsound.com has a good article in their home audio section about building them. If you don't want to, you could probably use pre-built boxes from PE, or beg someone on here to do them in bare MDF :)

Well, I'm lost with 90% of what's in your sig, so don't feel bad :D

Personally, I would go with a full range design to save money. No tweeters to buy, and no crossovers to buy/build.

Those FR125's I posted would be good, but let's face it - a complete 5.1 surround system (with receiver) for $300 isn't going to happen and sound very good. You're in the price range of HTIB's....maybe increase your budget a little more, and the options go up dramatically.
