Hahaha. 200$ seems like a good starting point, i'd say. You can buy a good pair of amplified monitors for that amount. Less bass-heavy, more midrange. Later on you can always add an amplified subwoofer and let your soundcard handle the signal output. (Depends on your soundcard outputs/drivers...)
Don't buy computer speakers. They're almost always unbalanced and overpriced.

Even an inexpensive set of properly engineered bookshelf speakers will reveal any "Elite Haxor Computer Speaker 76.1 Super-Hyper-Mega Surround" bundles for the (relative) pieces of price-point junk that they are.

How would you guys respond to a post that read "I need a computer. I want to spend $1000."?

Even the "non-PC" speakers noted here have their own internal amplifiers, so there's no real difference from your PC's POV.
