Although anything is a good upgrade from a standard stereo setup, I have been impressed with the quality of the Inspire T6100, and for the price they're not going to break the bank (especialy if you get the OEM version!).
There are a few cheaper 5.1 systems available (Creative do have a lower range, the SBS580 for instance) but these have considerably lower power outputs for the satellite speakers, and I found they weren't that much cheaper anyway.
I have to say if there had been a bass adjuster on the front-right control speaker as well that would have made things a little easier, or better yet a wired remote as some of Creative's other setups use. However after the initial tweaking I didn't need to adjust the bass again so it's not a critical thing.
