I agree with the others. I use a couple of 1200 w/s monolights, but that is overkill. I almost never use all that juice--400 w/s is way more than enough for most folks. I also find that slaving a couple of speedlights can be handy for adding fill light or other small area uses.

Okay.. so I'm going to look between 300 and 400 w/s. What is 'slaving'? If it's too complex to explain easily I'll just look it up, but might as well ask if it's a simple answer
