if you don't mind the hussle and wait of buying used, you will end up with MUCH better speakers from Audiogon.

You can go a million different ways....

Go to some local stores and listen to some systems. If your looking for volume Klipsch speakers tend to be the most efficient so you'd get maximum volume with the smallest amplifier.

Million ways - yeah: expect what you pay for

Dear improvished college student,
As you're not my grandkid, I won't kick in for your speakers. One guiding principle - you get what you pay for. If time is available check out independent audio dealers local and online for used equipment. It's like those necessary cars - there's a pecking order. Here in the southwest no pickup is abandoned for at least 25 years - just a succession of owners. Pretty far down the line from luxury vehicle buyers is the analogous spot for you. Independent audio dealers take "pity" trade-ins to do business. Sometime in the future you may develop an appreciation for actual service. What they have a few years old isn't glitzy but far better than what awaits you at WalMart, Best Buy or Circuit City. Latest tech isn't very important for pretty fine speakers - they last nearly forever.

Ebay

Ebay is another way to go, lots of electronics on there. (I know, I have sold a ton of used gear over the last couple of years)
