Been using headphones for 4 years now, I can hear better and the neighbors and family won´t be disturbed, I also use a mic in multiplayer games when needed. And I do not use my speakers anymore, they´re too old now

Speakers always will annoy someone. Whether its the other people in your house, or people online hearing echo through your mic. Obviously, there are ways around those things, but it seems most people don't bother.

Headphones with attached mic FTW

ARGON 7460A speakers with a SUB10 woofer.
5.1 systems feel overrated, the quality isn't nearly as good as with proper speakers.

i selected headphones, but i actually game with a headset... that way i can whine and complain about crap with my voice instead of typing it all out.

When I'm home playing without anyone else around, I use speakers, but if someone else is in the room, other than my brother or friends, I use headphones.

I'm going with 2.1, even though I have 5.1, but don't know where to put the rest 3 speakers, because the room layout sucks. That's why I have Siberia V2 headset to get myself into games more, sound-wise that is.
