    Anything decent really- good stereo integrated amps- Rotel, NAD.

    Do you want stereo only or multi-channel audio? (Pro-Logic/DD/DTS)

    Yamaha's are OK, should do for a PC setup. Go for the 640- even though the 540 is good enough- the lower end Yamaha's don't tend to cope well with low impedance speakers. The Minipods are 4 Ohm nominal, so could be a tricky load with lower quality amps.

    Regarding the Rotel; I was talking about stereo integrated amps. These are quite affordable. The Rotel AV amps are quite expensive, as you've found out.

    Yeah you'll need a AV Amp between the PC & speakers. There are lots of models to choose from, IMO Yamaha are probably the best starter AV amps.

    Are you from the US?)- www.avsforum.com is a better place- as that site is mainly for the americans.
