I recently went thru this. What I ended up doing was using the
integrated sound of the motherboard, and spending the entire budget on
a pair of Genelec 8030a active monitors. Your budget only buys one of
the pair, but they do sound wonderful. I use linux for midi into
hardware synths and hardware sequencers, so YMMV.
