VHO Lighting

I am getting a new 100gal(60x18x24) tank and I am not sure about my lighting. right now im kinda on a budget so vho seems to be my best option. I was curious if you thought 440watt balast w/ 4 110watt 48" vho lights would be enough for the tank, and what kind of bulbs are best to use. I plan on it being a reef tank and will buy metal halide too when money is a lil more avaliable

I have VHO retro fits and I use super actinic R and 50/50 bulbs from URI.

Check out www.aquauniverse.com for some really good prices on MH retrofit kits. I bought the 2 175watt 14k metal halide setup and my tank loves it!
