Although I cant really comment on the 621's, as I havent heard them myself, for quality PC speakers you really cant go wrong with Altec Lansing.

I've had my ATP5 for a little over two years now, and they still pump out perfect sound (coupled with a really nice sound card that is).

You could also use your home hi-fi system. It's cheaper and sounds better than pc-speakers

I have the 621's. Looks great and sounds great. The sub works really good too. I haven't had any problems with it. Overall... I think they are pretty good speakers.

Just remember to get a decent sound card with it... can't have great sound coming out of it with a crappy $2 sound card.

Almost anything by Altec should be plenty fine for use with a computer. I can't really say I have had any problems in the past with them as computer speakers (granted I wouldn't think of hooking them into my stereo.

You don't exactly need Gershman or Axiom on a computer. Unless, of course, you actually have a high end sound card and programs to make proper use of it. However, those are not exactly something that you see in most peoples computers.

Erm... 612 is a 2.1 setup, two satelites and a subwoofer. So you can't really make any comparison this way. 2.1 is good for general use, 5.1 and above are best for movies. Generally, price is a good indication of quality sound. So if you are talking about that, a 2.1 setup will most likely sound better if both are at the same price.

621 is altec lansing's best offering for 2.1 setup from right now. Good bass IMO...
