    Spend the money and get a decent set. $500 can probably get you a 2 200w/s monolight setup, maybe even a little less.

    110W isn't close to being enough light.

    800w is about right for studio work. Genesis makes a kit with a couple of 400W lights, stands, and a couple umbrellas that will barely work for about $650.
