I'd recommend the Infinity Primus 363s for $400 and the matching PC351 center for $200. Or you could just get the towers now and add the center, surrounds and a decent subwoofer from HSU research, SVS, or Rhthmik later (or check out the budget subwoofers thread, the current reigning budget subwoofer king is the Klipsch RW-12d which can often be had for $300 from Newegg).
Newegg also has the KEF iq70s on sale for $500/pair. These speakers are phenomenal at this price and superior to the Infinities. The matching center is no longer available but I"ve read the Q200C or Q600C match up fairly well.
