is it possible to buy a 5.1 surround system with a blu ray or dvd player im asking because i want to hook up my pc and ps3 to one

I'm not sure your question. You mean without a Blu-ray player? The PS3 is a Blu-ray player so an additional Blu-ray player would be kind of redundant.

You can get a dedicated Home Theater in a Box or build a system around an AV Receiver and connect your ps3 and computer to it. I have my PC, 360, and PS3 connected to my custom-built home theater system.

i looked into buying varioushome systems and all the ones i saw include a dvd upscaler or bluray player in the bundle so yh i need a av receiver and separate speakers

I'm sure there should still be a pretty good amount of HTiB's available without the DVD/Blu-ray player.

While I do tend to avoid going the HTiB route (I prefer to build a system over time. Usually takes more money, though) I would take a look at Onkyo HTiBs. Onkyo makes some pretty good ones. I would also not be afraid of buying a higher-end one that might be a few years old.

There haven't been massive strides in AV receivers aside from HDMI 1.4 and 3D recently. A one or two year old system that cost a bit more might be a better bargain (probably more powerful and sound better too).

If you want to build a system yourself, it really depends on what your budget is.
