Speakers - Would Any Off The Shelf Ones Work?

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron 530. I would like a set of external speakers for it but I have been told by some people that because my computer is a Dell and because it is now quite a few years old, that any 'off the shelf' speakers won't work with it. Is that true? I don't want to have to spend a small fortune on a set, the budget won't stretch to a fancy set atm.

Any advice?

Thanks - Sarah.

hi sarah was just trying to make u aware the argos ones in your link are powered by plugging them into the usb port on the pc thus not powered by the usual wall socket plug

Hi Mart7,

Those would be the best type for me, really, less cables. Plus there is no spare socket in the computer room for a plug.

Sarah :)
