    How many watts total would that be?

    Are you trying to go 8.1 Surround Sound? Why not just go 7.1 or 9.1, unless you want a 9.1 reciever and just use 8 instead of 9.

    Where would the 9th go and why would a need a .1 to make it a 10 set? 4 for left and right on front and rear, 2 for sides, and 2 for Center in the front and rear.
    I'm thinking 250 watts a peaces so about 2000 watts give or take.

    I want my gaming to feel real, I'm thinking about Turing the Garage into a theater/ PC game room. I live in the middle of no where so I could crank it as load as I wanted to.

    Well, I'm just saying since the .1 is for subs (usually) but I can see that those speakers can give off quite an amount of bass.

    Like for my setup(s) for example, one Polk Audio Center, 2 Floorstanding side (L and R), 4 FloorStanding Rear (Surround R and L, Back R and L) and a 12" Sub. So 7.1 surround sound.

    I didn't quite understand how you wanted to setup your speakers at first, but now I do.
