I am considering my first HT purchase. Starting with Polk Rti70's as the Fronts and CSi40 as the center ( not sure about sub or SS yet ). In this case, when looking at receivers, how many watts/channel should I look for in a receiver. Leaning towards Yamaha line. Any sugestions would be appreciated.

There can be a huge difference in actual output from different recievers that are advertised as being the same wattage. You may be able to go to someplace like Circuit city and compare an Onkyo to... something cheap (name brands are escaping me right now) and you'll probably see that the onkyo is much louder even if the advertised wattage is lower than on a cheaper brand.
