Ron beat me to it, but I agree. At a MINIMUM I would look for 400W, but me personally, I would shoot for 500W-600W (but that's just me).

I am looking forward to seeing your progress.

I have been scouring the net for this, and am coming up empty. Unless you wanted to buy a pack of it, off ebay, but it was around $6 for 5 tubes, with ~$28 shipping. :eek:
