2x5.1=7.1?

I've decided not to upgrade my PC, but wait for the thing to actually die.

Long time ago I went balls-to-the-wall ridiculous on gaming performance with a custom built PC with top GeForce (heh) SLI and it got broked in a tragic accident. So, I'm being cheap in hoped that I may believe myself smarter. Well, I had a laptop for University. It busted. And without much thought went to Best Buy and paid cash for any PC that just looked cool.

These are my current specs http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/kb/docDisplay?javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.prp_ba847bafb2a2d782fcbb0710b053ce01=wsrp-navigationalState%3DdocId%253Demr_na-c01786142-27%257CdocLocale%253D%257CcalledBy%253D&javax.portlet.tpst=ba847bafb2a2d782fcbb0710b053ce01&ac.admitted=1393948757683.876444892.492883150

What it didn't come with was a good speaker system. In virtue of being cheap, and 7.1 speakers comparatively aren't, this video caught my eye



Has anyone got info on this?

I still use a pair of poo pooty speakers that came free with a game bundle I bought over 10 years go, that's how much I care about sound lol

Also, why did you buy a prebuilt :(

Why did I buy a pre-built?

Because I could get the PC in less than 30 minutes and did. I wouldn't have if my laptop didn't bust.

I have a simple Logitech 2 speakers and subwoofer set for my PC, they give excellent sound and bass, good enough for a PC

Called the Z4 or some poo poo like that

Also planing on getting a TV and making a cheap home theatre thingy. Wasn't going to think of monitor replacement, but some larger price tags are getting flirtatious and make me want to believe.

600Hz WTF?

A good 2.1 is much better than the average 7.1

Other than DVDs what even uses anything more than 2 speakers?

I'm pretty sure some games do and can give a tactical advantage in fragging.

Was pondering a home theatre/gaming pc. But then leaning towards sli 3d cards? Nah. I appreciate the feedback. Thanks. :)

Heh, I may just get an Xbox and plasma TV.

I used to scoff at consoles but the entertainment value over price is probably the best.

:EDIT:

I was looking at some forums and saw a lot of unhappy customers with the Xbox One.

One dude bought this alongside and was happy as poo poo though http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=330

I'm thinking about actually cleaning my PC and not waiting for it to die.

Also, in a show of contempt, download windows 8.1. As Xbox One and WD TV Live seem to require the media feastures from that OS.

Oh and just to correct the topic title, 2x5.1 equals 10.2, not 7.1 :twisted:

I think he was just asking if he got the calculations right, zigs. But good on you for getting the right answer!
