Yep. With 1 cord/switch that turns both bulbs on, a cheap $20-$25 Workhorse 5 ballast will work fine.

Actually, I'd go with a Workhorse 7 for that. Fulham recommends it for 2x55W, so I would assume the same for 2x65.

Also, it's worth looking around locally. I found a place on the way home from work that has Fulham Workhorse for $22 or less.
