I looked at various computer speakers. In the end I just went for a decent Cambridge Audio amp and some compact Pioneer speakers.

IMO computer speakers are generally quite poor. You are better off running sound through a fairly decent separate amp and some quality speakers - just make a budget and visit an audio store rather than a computer store.
I would second that. Most computer speakers sets, especially those horrible satellite/sub setups are just awful: always way too much bass and no midrange at all. I got myself a set of M-Audio StudioPro 3 audio monitors that have been very good. They don't produce booming bass, but they do produce a very clear and accurate sound with a good midrange. If you want a lot of bass, I think they can be connected to a subwoofer somehow, but I haven't done it.

I would rather have the satellite/sub setup for visual aesthetics and bass, but after hearing music through these they all just sound like garbage and I'll never go back.
