You'll have no problem driving the tower speakers with that receiver, and for a room of that size, I think the towers are a good choice.
For the center, I would get the Primus 350 or 351. For me, the 351 center channel was the reason I went with the Primus line. It's big, but it also is responsible for a huge amount of the sound in movies.
For sides and rears, I have Primus 162s and 163s (same, just cosmetic differences). I like having the 6.5" woofer, but the 153 would be fine as well. I would only go down to the 143 if you needed to for size constraints. The 143 isn't strong below 100, and I prefer crossing over to my sub at 80 hz.
As far as the sub goes, that's a whole separate discussion. You have a large room, and the decision would really come down to the budget.
