Yep. 2.1 old skool. I am getting divorced as many here know (sucks) but she is taking the speakers currently in service (and have been for the last 4 years) Altec Lansing 2.1 with the 4" sub. Now I have a chance to buy another set of speakers and as they'll be my primary speakers (no stereo system) I want them to R O C K like Slayer. Help a brother out.
I am looking at the Logitech Z-2300 by the way if anyone knows where there is more thump.

I've been using the z-2300 for nearly 3 years. I must say, for a 2.1 setup, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better sounding pair. They really do sound great. They will be the perfect setup to commemorate your fresh new start with rocking style.

I got a set of these for Christmas, and I really like them. My only complaint is that the subwoofer is bigger than I expected, and it doesn't fit nicely under my desk like my old one did. But now that I have them, I wouldn't trade them in.
Oh, and get them for cheap at Provantage (http://www.provantage.com/logitech-970118-0403~7LGTS00M.htm)

Yes the sub is quite big (approx 12"x12"x15"). For me that was the perfect size to slip under my desk. It's like an ottoman, the perfect place to rest my feet when I'm watching movies. hehe.

I have these, and they sound great. Not enough to shake the house down, but not bad.
You could always do what I did in college: Get a basic receiver, hook your PC up through a basic RCA Y cable and use decent bookshelf speakers with a powered subwoofer. You'll get more bang for your buck this way. (I think computer setups are overpriced.)
My roomates hated it when I played quake III.
