Windows 7: Powerful speaker system for my Asus Xonar D2X

Powerful speaker system for my Asus Xonar D2X

I have an Asus Xonar D2X sound card for my rig and I am currently using a logitech X-540 speaker system.
I'd like it if someone can recommend a really powerful speaker system that can be used with the sound card without the use of a receiver.
I was looking into something better than logitech Z906. My budget is around $500

EDIT: The speaker system should be 5.1 or 7.1

Thanks

Thanks for the suggestions.
I like the Logitech Z-5500 specs but not the design. Is it better than the Logitech Z906? Because if they sound the same I might go for the Z906 or should I wait for a Z-5500 relaunch?

Thanks again

the Z-5500 power is 505 watt, and Z-906 has 500 watt... but my choice is the Logitech Z-906

I prefer the Z906 design, Seems more professional but the reviews on it are just discouraging.

The Z5500 has been discontinued and replaced with the Z906.

Not sure if they are available where you are but another option would be these,

Edifier S550 Multimedia Speaker

Most reviews rate then higher than the z5500.

Looks decent bit the output power is almost half the Z5500 and Z906. Thanks for the suggestion though.
I guess i might go for Z906 in the end.
