Bang for buck 5.1 Speakers?

I'm just after a quick recommendation for a budget bang-for-buck 5.1 speaker
system. Will be used for games, music, movies - but mainly just boring day
to day computer stuff. Looking to spend around $100 Australian (c. $70 US).
Was looking at the Logitech X530 but they seem to be drying up - are they
about to be replaced?

All suggestions appreciated.

Cambridge Soundworks. Harder to find, but worth the effort. Smashing out some tunes as I type.

You can't beat these things for bang-for-buck. They have had rave reviews over the years.
