I was wondering if I should upgrade my logitech z3-i speakers to either a

ALTEC LANSING MX5021 90W 2.1 Speaker
Logitech Z-2300 200 watts RMS 2.1 Speaker

or if I should get

Logitech X-530 70 watts 5.1 Speaker

I'm not a PC Gamer, though I play some games like Counter Strike and Warcraft, but other then that, most of use of my speakers are music.

If you don't really mind surround sound in games and movies, and use them for music, I'd definately take a good 2.1 set instead a 5.1 set at the same price range. Entry-level 5.1 sets tend to have satellites that lacks midrange, and while it doesn't matter much in games, it can be distracting and sound "tinny" if you're a discerning music listener.

Both the 2.1 sets you listed there are very good choices IMO, but I'd give them a listen at a local store (Staples, Best Buy, etc.) if you can, to see if they are really worth the upgrade from your Z3 :)
