You're going to end up spending more money than you think anyway, tategrant. Either you are going to spend it on lighting or on dead corals. The cheap lights for 50-100 on ebay that say coral lps
are lies. The tao is the lowest i would go from my research. I have been trying to switch from metal halide to LEDs and have been reading non-stop to make sure i don't switch to something that kills all of my corals. The way you inquire about coral leads me to believe you will be sticking them in the tank and trust me it hurts to lose even a $10 frag and will drive some people from pursuing the hobby. Choose what fits your budget but you will lose you're investment if you put corals under those lights.
