you are having the computer system which is now little bit old and the speakers of this computer system is not working at all. Now coming to the point, you want to buy the new speakers for this computer system and for that purpose you have already selected the two Altec Lansing speakers but the problem is that you are not able to select anyone of this speakers for the buying for your computer system. I think first of all you should decide that which type of the speakers you want for the computer system. Because one is 2.1 and another is the 5.1 speakers that you have selected.

Before buying you should make the decision that you want the 2.1 or 5.1 channel surround sound speakers for your computer system. Because the speakers that you have selected for your computer systems are 5.1 and 2.1 speakers respectively. Altec Lansing ADA885 is 5.1 and the Altec Lansing ADA890 is the 2.1 speakers. However the decision will be yours but i will recommend you to go fro the Altec Lansing ADA885 5.1 surround sound speakers.

You can buy the Altec Lansing ADA885 5.1 surround sound speakers but before buying this speaker make sure that your computer system supports the 5.1 speakers or not. I think it does not supports 5.1 speakers because this is older computer system. So , if not supported then you will have to buy the Altec Lansing ADA890 speakers. Which is 2.1 speaker system and it is supported by your computer system. If you want to go for the 5.1 speakers then you will have to attach the extra sound card in your computer system which supports the 5.1 channel speakers.
