Monitor speaker recommendations

In an effort to simplify my system, I'm looking for some straightforward monitor speakers to use with an Alesis MultiMix. Specific details?

I have an Alesis MultiMix 8 USB 2.0
, used as a computer sound card and as a thing to play other instruments through. At the moment, the sound is outputted from the Alesis into a conventional hi-fi Receiver and out through two ageing Goodmans loudspeakers. It's not ideal.
I'd like to upgrade to some all-rounder monitor speakers that can plug straight in the MultiMix. I would then ditch the hi-fi equipment and existing speakers. The new speakers would be used from everything from listening to mp3 audio and playing games on the computer to listening to and recording guitar, coming straight out of an amp simulator. Ultra high fidelity is not required, just something tough enough to cope with a broad range of signals at relatively high volume (e.g. distorted guitar). I'm in the UK and would be willing to go to £150-200 max, maybe more if a killer solution exists.
I'm also not sure if I'm looking for active speakers or not (and what this actually means...). Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
