Money to spend....

I need opinions on what to spend my money on.... I have about 800 give or take a little more or less to spend. Should I get a really nice lighting unit. I can spend about 1500 if I need to for leds. Or should I get a controller for my system? What are some options.

What do you want to use this light for? What tank are you illuminating?

Very vague. what size tank? what do you want? your could probably do lights (not LED) and a controler for less than you are talking about spending. I just bought my second MP40 and a Pimped out RKE for under 800.
