Replacement ballast for 150w MH Odyssea fixture?

So long story short I'm pretty sure the ballast for my Odyssea MH just blew as it went "pop" and will no longer turn on.

Can someone please recommend a replacement good quality ballast that does not cost an arm and a leg and is good quality? Would also appreciate recommendations on 150w double ended 14,000K MH bulbs.

When mine failed I went to Aqua Traders in San Bruno Ca. http://www.aquatraders.com/ They do online sales too.
After opening my ballast and seeing how much it melted I never completed the repair for fear of it causing a fire in my house.
Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
