Reef Lighting

So i've got an ICECAP 660 in my posession at the moment. With it I can drive 440Watts of VHO or some PC's. But I can also sell this ICECAP for $100 and then buy a Ballast+Refelect+(2x250Watt MH)Bulbs(~6months) for $160. Should I go for it or just use the ICECAP?

It depends on what you plan on keeping and the size of your tank. Remember MH produce a lot of heat, smaller tanks can have heat issues. If heat is not an issue, go w/ the MH's IMO.
