Recessed and track lighting dimmer ?????

Hi, I have 2 Questions. First, I need to know what type of dimmer could be used on a track lighting fixture that use MR16 50 watt bulbs? Second, what type of dimmer can be used on 10 recessed cans with 65 watt floods?

The dimmer must be rated for the wattage controlled. So the 10 recessed fixtures, for example, could not get by with a 600-watt dimmer, so you'll have to move up to a 1000-watt dimmer. I would probably consider whether two dimmers, each controlling five of the ten lights, might be a better design.
