How many 15 amp breakers do i need to finish a basement? I have 5 outlets and 5 100W lights. The outlets will be needed for a tv and maybe a stereo.

I have one breaker space left in my box, will that be enough? If not, can i run another box off that one open space?

Thanks...

I would suggest getting a 20 amp breaker and run 12/2 for the circuit. Although you might get buy with 14/2 and a 15 amp I would build your circuit to handle what ever might get plugged in to those outlets. Just my thoughts. Hope it goes good.
