Watts per gallon is useless for reefs. It's about PAR. Since that's not a really readily available measurement, try googling your lighting and seeing what people have had success keeping.

I personally think you should save up for a better light and not waste the money on the CFs. They're not that strong and for a bit of extra money you could be keeping some lower light SPS near the top of the tank with a T5HO fixture

If you're willing to find another way to mount it (can be hung or sat on a glass top, or some people rig new legs), the 18" Nova Extreme fixture is ~$60 and apparently supports LPS and some SPS. That's the only relatively cheap t5ho fixture I've seen (I've been looking for my upcoming tank). The next one up that will fit will run probably around $100.
