I'm looking into getting the Creative GigaWorks S750 7.1 THX? certified speaker system set. It's probably the best out there with a nice $300+ price tag.

I'll be connecting my PC to my 25 inch Flat Screen TV, so I can enjoy watching movies & palying Games with massive sound. I know for a fact that the women of the house will be going nut's with all that sound.

Which Motherboard/Chipset does anybody recommend? I have my heart set on ATI's new improved S 939 chipset & the nForce 4 chipset. But I need to decide.

The problem is though, that the nForce 4 is out but in its early stages where as the ATI will be coming in around middle of February & looking quite promising.

Thanks for the info in advance.

Super...

It is MY opinion that you should steer AWAY from the Creative speakers...they just aren't the same quality ever since Creative bought out Cambridge.  The fact is, to MY understanding, that this Creative THX set is really the ONLY 7.1 speaker set out there -> no competition.

If it were ME, I'd go with either the high-end Logitechs of Klipsch...MUCH better speakers from what I have read and heard.  And I HAVE actually heard both of those spkr sets in use.

Well, I looked into Klipsch PROMEDIA 5.1 THX?-Certified. And it's a solid sytem.

I also looked into Logitech? Z-5500 Digital w/THX? Certified ? 5.1 Configuration ? Dolby? Digital & DTS? Hardware Decoding ? 500 Watts ? Digital SoundTouch? Control Center. which sounds alittle more appealing.

What do you say?

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 Pro. That is, if you've got the ca$h.

Nvidia SoundStorm is awesome also. Just get an chipset motherboard, and that should come with Soundstorm. Correct me if I'm wrong.

NVIDIA stopped including the SoundStorm with there newer Chipsets because of cost.
I don't mind spending a little more for a mobo with SoundStorm :)

I heard that MSI's K8T Neo FIR has excellent integrated sound, perhaps even better than a SB Audigy 2 ZS.

I heard that too.

Oh, about Gygabite's SLI, they are the slowest compared to every other one out there.

Thought you want to know this. :)

Yes, I hear you.

This is why anybody looking into building a PC anytime soon, so because if you don't build it right now, then you will never build it. You will be always waiting & waiting for new things to come out.
