Stereo/surround sound system recommendations? Monitor too maybe??

I've been using a Logitech stereo (w/ sub) system for a good six or seven years now, but there are some feedback problems (plus some frightening explosion sounds if the sub connection is bumped) occurring more and more and I need to upgrade. I've actually tried this before with a couple other Logitech sound systems similarly priced but they both sounded like tinny s*** compared to the original. There are quite a few selections on NCIX.ca and I really don't have any idea what kind of stats I'm looking for. I tend to go overboard to ensure quality and compensate for my ignorance ($200 Audio-Technica studio headphones) but I'd rather not spend more than $300.

As for the monitor, I really just need a trusted brand for gaming. I can figure out size/pricing myself. That's one thing I can do, I think.

I just got the Creative T40's, and they are awesome. I live in an apartment and can't take advantage of crazy bass so these are perfect. They are far from weak sounding.

They are on sale for 104.00 now.

Those look good, but I definitely want something with a sub. Mostly for the bass, partly for the footstool.

So I'm looking at this:

However I'm not noticing any stands or anything like that. Am I supposed to buy them separate? That seems a bit ridiculous.

This is the monitor I'm thinking about getting:

I've never even heard of BenQ though...

If you want a 2.1, here you go. I would have got these but I have no need for a sub as I already have studio monitor speakers.

I originally wanted surround sound, but it's not looking like I'll get my money's worth. After looking around a bunch I've found that those speakers seem to be the best available at that price. Thanks!
