the T8 ballasts work for CF bulbs and can be found for far cheaper over hear (I got mine for about 16 bucks each with shipping off ebay) the workhorse is also not exactly a CF ballast its a muti use ballast therefore it wires up more like a T8 ballast.. Fulhams website has wiring diagrams for their ballasts (wich would work for the T8 ballast of = size)

Hmmm... I'm tempted to just purchase a pre-made PC fixture. I'll have to drop $350 on it so something keeps telling me that's just too expensive for what essentially are just lights at higher wattages.

Finding the ballasts are the hardest bit.
