As others have pointed out, you don't really need towers if you are using a sub. And usually you can get more driver for the buck with bookshelf speakers.
if you are thinking 5 speakers, I would consider the Ascend Acoustic CMT340 for the fronts. L-C-R can be had for just under 1000 dollars, leaving you plenty for a good sub and surrounds. Other suggestions on here sound very good as well...
