Halide Vs Compact

Is there a true benefit to Halide besides the power of the bulbs or does it all come down to WPG?

Thanks

I just bought the set up steve is talking about for my 45G tank. I got a 250 watt halide with two PC 03 actinics. Do halides beat the poop outta PC in worth and benefits? IMO.. "Oh yeah!"
