lighting question

i have current 65x4 pc lights and the LFS wants way to much for the bulbs
i have found a place on the net selling cheaper bulbs but they do not have the duals 7500/10k or the 420/460 they do have a 6500 and a 10k separate and a 420and a 460 separate is there any advantage to the duals or will the other bulbs be ok

A 65w dual bulb will run you about $30 online, about $20 for singles. You can just alternate your bulbs with 1 actinic and 1 10k on each side. I like the dual bulbs, it fills out more IMO.
