any links? Cheap means under 60 bucks..
The cheapest way to go is a ballast kit.
You can mount it on a board or put it in a metal box.
You also will need a socket.

The ballast kit is probably the way to go then. $60 isnt that much so Im not really sure. Take a look around on the net and Im sure you will find something. Good luck and take care.
how much for a socket?
I believe you can also find supplies like this in local electrical supply shops, although I don't know if 400 watt is standard outside of hydroponics.
Its the 600w thats not standard.
