Honestly, unless you have a very large room, you really won't hear any difference between 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound (not to mention the fact that very few movies are even available with a 7.1 soundtrack. Most of the time you'd just be listening to a 5.1 soundtrack that is matrix processed into 7.1). Your money is better spent on getting high quality fronts and a center channel. Heck, you'd be better off getting 5 speakers and 2 subs (5.2) and positioning them correctly to reduce standing waves.
