Yes, you can use standard 2.1 Computer Speakers. You need powered speakers (ones that have their own built in power amplifier). Standard Hi Fi or Stereo Speakers do not have built in amplifiers and will not work (or if they do it will be very low volume).

They should work without problems. The plug goes into the GREEN speaker jack on the PC.
