Bear in mind that there are different sized bulbs, par 38, 46, 56, 64.
The units that house these bulbs will be smaller as well, but still retain the par can shape. Check this page for sizes, distance and output: http://www.123dj.com/l_parcans.html
Par cans have gel holders which are sweet. You can also build softboxes to go around them as well.
I'm a big fan of spending little money and using what I have till I can afford or NEED to buy the real deal stuff (like arri lights)
