headphones are good for refrence, but not for monitoring, for monitoring you want a flat response system, the Gravity Blaster probly isnt giving you that, most hi-fi systems color the sound massivly. the most important aspect tho, is learning the diffrence between you speakers and a big rig, you can produce on any speakers you want once you learn that, although you will make your life easier if you have flat response monitors

wont go wrong with a pair of Alesis M1MK2's, cheap, and will get you going

in the meantime, use your speakers, and refrence between the headfones so that the music sounds good on both, dont just focus on it sounding good on the speakers, otherwise the mixdown wont be right

active will be easiest to start off with, otherwise you'll have to find a flat amp aswell, u can them pretty cheap, I paid 150 for my referbished active alsesis a few years ago (digital village i think)

im quite bad when it comes to this, i make beats and mixdown mostly through headphones even tho ive got a perfectly good set of monitors sitting infront of me lol!!! just habbit tbh. another good way of referencing without having decent monitors is to try it on as many sound systems as possible.
home stereo,
car stereo,
mates car stereo,
ipod with several different earphones

make sure it sounds decent on all of the above and ur onto a winner

A good pair of headphones (provided you can drive them) is real usable. If you don't have a pro set-up you're going to have to cross reference anyway. Those cheap speakers that are designed for games etc will be diabolical. Un-usable.

Another thing.

In the long run its probably best if you just save and buy a mac.
If you goto college or know anyone who goes to college they can buy one for you and get a discount.

I wish I bought a Mac years ago to be honest, ive had a few computers which have fucked up over time. And I didnt even use limewire lol.
