Cheap Light Approach

Hey guys, I am planning to use this fixture on my new 55, to save some money.

48" Performance Titanium Light at Menards

What do you think? & What bulbs would you guys recommend me to use?

Since the ballast will drive t-8 or t-12, go with t-8 bulbs, and look for a color temp of 6500-10000K.
