I want nice sound for listening to music and watching video only. Any thoughts? What's the difference between monitors and speakers?

Look for LogiTek or Altec-Lansing

Both make some nice stereo pair of powered speakers and a small powered subwoofer. Creative makes a nice line too, ranging price from $25. to $100. Some monitors come with speakers but their sound is tinny at best. A little hot glue can adhere them to side of the monitor if that's the desired position.
