Best setup for my room

Hello, I am just starting to set up my new studio and I've decided on Genelec monitors because many of my friends who produce similar music to me have suggested them (Dance and Hiphop).But I have no idea what monitor setup would be best in my room. It is 9x11x8 (ft), I also will be making some bass traps soon. I have to opportunity to buy an 8020C + 7040a combo for almost 1/2 price but I'm not sure if they would be big (loud) enough for my room. I have also looked into the M040's which I've heard are very good if you have to place them on a desk (Which I will be). Highest price I would like to pay is 2000 AUD (1300 Euros).

EDIT: If something is suggested that would be above 2000 AUD, I may consider saving up and purchasing them later.
