HTPC Speaker Options




I just built my HTPC and I am debating on what to use as sound output. I currently have a 8 channel Realtek ALC850 with the 6 audio outputs in the back. My question is whether I should buy computer speakers to connect to the PC or if I should buy a Surround System to connect to the PC. Also I have very little experience in this area and would greatly appreciate it if yall could offer a few recommendations or at least some guidelines in what to look for. I am looking to spend $80 to $120, I know that may be kind of low but I decided to put my money in a new computer, a dual tuner, and Hard Drive space.

Thank you for your time and help,
