**300 watt or 500 watt halogen which and why**

I am looking at either 4 500 watt halos around front and 3 300 halos along each side that's 3800 watts so if I figured correctly in order to run generator at 80% capacity I would need at least a generator making 6,840 watts at normal operation.

Option 2

is 10 300 watt lights for 3000 total watts, which would be a generator making at least 5,400 watts at normal operation.

Option 3

8 300 watt lights for 2,400 watts and use a generator that produces 4,320 watts at normal operation.

Option 4

6 300 watt lights for and 2 500 watt lights at 2,800 watts and use a 5,040 watt normal operation generator.

Sorry I got to figuring my different options there. Do the 500 watt lights make that much light. Looks like option 1 would definetly need more than a 5,000 watt generator would option 2,3 or 4 be the safest,economically way to go?

Thanks
