Do any budget computer speakers stand out?

I'm looking for a set of 2.1 computer speakers in the sub-$100 range, and I was wondering if there are any models that are particularly good relative to the competition. They are going to be a gift for someone who is not into high-end audio. They will be mainly used for casual music listening (definitely no ABX'ing!).

For example, for those familiar with headphones, the Koss KSC50's sound great for only $20. In other words I am looking for the Koss KSC50 of computer speakers.

Alternatively, does anyone know any good sites that might have a guide to the best speakers for different price ranges, similar to the way head-fi.org has guides for the best headphones in different budget ranges?

I'll vouch for Cambridge Soundworks. However, I am not a speaker person, at least not compared to alot of people on this forum, but I have this model attached to my PC and I think it delivers.

I've owned a set of Cambridge Soundworks for longer than five years and I'd also recommend them. In fact, my next PC speakers most likely will be the MicroWorks II
