Buying LED lighting?

Hi could someone help please?

I want to use LED lighting in my TROPICAL tank, I have been advised to use TMC AquaGro GroBeam Ultima -Twin and will need TMC Aquaray MMS T5 End Caps and TMC Aquaray MMS Rail 1090mm to fit.

There seem to be a lot of other gadgets and things involved. Do I need to purchase anything else i.e. power cables etc.? Or is this sufficient to just install as is and power up on my timer switch? (I am under the assumption that you just put the end caps into my existing ports insert the bulbs and hey presto)

Thanks for any help!
