    For 5.5k u can get Altec Lansing 251, these are 5.1 speakers and are much better than the creative counterparts. If u are into gaming and watching TV, DVD's etc on your PC then go for 5.1 and if you only listen to mp3 and such and u are a casual gamer then 2.1 is alright. But 5.1 is the way to go since DVDs already have 5.1 sound, all latest games too and mp3 surround and other muti-channel codecs r making their way into the mainstream.

    Well mate, the best sound solution for you would be the Creative Inspire 5.1 It's the best you can get for around 5K. It gives good gaming performance. But don't go below 5 Channel Sound as its the basic nowadays.

    I beleive in Altec lansing's over creatives any days. Also preferably you should go in for a 2.1 in that price range, as i belive that the 5.1 do not do justice in that range of price. Another factor you have to see is the kind of surroundings you are going to place them in and what kind do you expect out of your speaker system ?? example to play games watch movies, music..............which is your priority?

    if listening to music is ur priority and u dont feel like watching movies n playing games on ur PC then u shud go for a good quality 2.1 speakers setup....n if thats the case then look no further then Altec Lansing ATP 3, priced arnd. Rs.3,500....complete nirvana....
    and if ur looking for the BEST 2.1 speaker setup arnd. 5K then Altec Lansing 2100 shud be ur choice.....not only they look gr8 but they are also one of the best 2.1 speakers in the market....
    and and :p if u can strech ur budget to 6K then check out Altec Lansing 621 2.1 speakers....one thing for sure....u need a BIG room to adjust its subwoofer....it has got one of the most powerfull subwoofer ever produced for a 2.1 speakers setup.... :)
    and as rohanbee said that its really hard to get a good quality 5.1 setup arnd. 5K, and if u prefer quality over quantity then avoid a 5.1 setup....but still if u desire to own one then go for creative inspire 5.1 coz these are the cheapest u can get....but keep in mind that the subwoofer of inspire series is no match for altec lansings and they also lack tweeters and well.....neodaynium magnets....thats still a dream for creatives..:p

    so the choice is urs....

    ENjoy :)

    Well a creative 5.1 speakers set is a good buy for under 5k. You can also look for Altec Lansing ones but I have bought the creative ones cause I have heard them rock. Dont know abt Altec Lansing.
