Alien bees

hi all,

I’m looking to possible upgrade my lighting from Norman (800m pack with 4 heads) to the alien bees 800. I have always assumed that the “800” referred to the watts it put out but looking at the description today it looks like these lights put out a max of 320 watt seconds. My Norman lights  can go up to 400 w-s between two lights and a full 800 w-s in on head. I do primarily portrait (head, mid and full shots) and I’m wondering am I really downgrading if I switch to 3 AB 800’s?
