I suggest that you get 4 of the Pioneer FS52 speakers and a C22 center speaker.
They are excellent speakers; hard to beat for under $1000.
You should have enough power, but if you could eventually get a NAD or Marantz receiver you will find the sound quality to be a great improvement.
They have lower distortion when driving real speakers (as opposed to a resistor on a test bench), and your ears will know the difference when you hear them.
The power specs published by the manufacturer are the worst thing you can go by when picking a receiver. Many brands have inflated unrealistic ratings, which do not reflect real-world sonic performance.
