Subwoofers are meant to go on the ground.

Usually, yea. But it depends on the kit.

The Swan M10 2.1 kit has a subwoofer that was intended to go on a desk. Rather annoying...

if I put the subwoofer on the ground, it will be next to my PC tower,

will it cause damage to PC tower, hardrives, etc?

No. Speakers and subs are driven by magnets, but they're not powerful enough to affect your HDDs.

You'll get a bit more bass if you put it on the floor. Up to you if that's desirable.

Subwoofers can go anywhere as long as that spot gives the best freq response. You can have in bolted to the ceiling in the center of the room if you wanted...

LCD monitors are not affected by magnets.
