Lighting Question

I need some advice on what type of light to get. I have a 55g that I want the option of doing any corals I want to do. The LFS told me I need 260W of light. I am just not sure what brand or kind of light I should get. I am looking to spend $150-$300 on a new light. Any ideas on any web site I can buy the lights on would be great as the LFS seem to be expensive.

If you want to get any type coral then you`ll need MH`s. I have found that they are lowest price at ebay. If you want LPS and soft corals then CF`s and VHO`s are a good choice.
