So yea, I'm looking for a sound system in the 150 price range.
I mainly listen to music, but it should be at least OK for watching movies too.
I don't want headphones because I want to listen music with other people too from time to time.

Are there any best choices (like the AKG K601 would be, if I was looking for a headphone)?

The very act of observing, influences what happens.

Yes two speakers and an amp is the classic setup and can offer great music results.
Some issues with 2 speaker setups include leaving space behind the speaker (if they rear port - that is have a hole at the back).
You do get front ported speakers that may not require the rear clearance.

Small speakers may benefit from a seperate sub (which might push you over the budget).

How are you feeding the amp, the phono jacks at the back of your PC? Anologue outputs from motherboard vary greatly. Someone else here can probably walk through the pros and cons of current boards.

At your pricepoint though it may be difficult to find an amp that supports a digital input, though I hope they are becoming more common.

I think the key thing you will personally find at that budget is actually to do with placement of the speakers in your particular room, rather than the component choices themselves.
