    Doesnt really matter what amp... it will be 100x better than cheapo PC speakers.

    The real trick is matching a nice pair of speakers for your PC. I can recommend Canton CD10 which I'm using on my Cyrus 2.

    Sounds like you've got some serious woof there. Although your speakers are fine, I would however suggest some smaller speakers, preferably "monitors" that you place on your desk either side of your monitor.

    Hi-fi speakers often are not so good at close range... they are designed for a large separation distance, and for listening maybe 3 meters away. Not ideal on a PC when you sit 50cm or less from the speaker.

    Take a look at the canton CD10, and use them with your sub. I guarantee it will sound a lot better, and your stereo positioning will improve.
