Lighting help

I need some help with lighting. I need more light in my 135 gallon tank. I have 4 40w fluorescent bulbs now, and it's not even close to being enough. I'm going to be building a hood for the tank, and I'm on a tight budget. If I use ballasts and bases, can I just use regular fluorescent bulbs to light the tank? Or am I going to have to go to VHO, Power Compacts, or Metal Halide lighting? Thanks in advance for the help.
