Desktop speaker recommendations...

So I am transitioning from just having a "normal" audio experience via my PC's integrated sound card and my now almost 17-year old Altec Lansing 2.1 speakers to something....a little beefier.

I have recently upgraded my PC to an ASUS X470 motherboard with a Ryzen 2700X CPU, and want to start getting the most out of my sound. I primarily listen to music and play my guitar along with it. Primarily I listen to bands in the Symphonic Metal genre...Nightwish, Epica, Kamelot, etc..along with other straightforward metal bands like Metallica, Disturbed, Rammstein....so that gives you an idea of what I am working with.

My room is only 9' x 12'..but I know eventually I will be getting a larger home in the future, and my space for my "man cave" will almost triple...so I am looking for something "now" that will also be an excellent choice for "then". I just bought an Audioengine D1 DAC, and was planning to get a set of Edifier 1280BT speakers, or maybe even the 1700s....but also know there are a lot of other good options out there. Which brings me here...

Based on what I have now and want to do...what speakers would also be a good option to recommend taking a look at?

The PSB Alpha PS1 or P3 Speakers (powered or unpowered) are very good desktop speakers.

I am running a pair of SVS Prime Wireless that are paired with a SB2000 sub and I'm quite impressed with the ability of these small speakers. They replaced a much larger system and I'm more than pleased with the results. Otherwise, you might take a look at the offerings from other mid-market brands like Audioengine, Kantu, PSB, and Klipsch.
