I can vouch for these (see link in previous post). I think they're very good speakers for the money. They're also quite forgiving when it comes to room placement, so if you're short on space its a great option. Also they are quite sensitive, so you dont need a high power amp to run them (which is good for the budget). And that's a good price on them too, but you might be able to talk the guy down a few bucks.
That said, a set of larger speakers may last you longer simply because of the "I should have got bigger ones" syndrome. I know, because I have this problem.
