Wow, 5.6wpg! With older bulbs, intensity will be a little subdued, but I'd be worried about color. Still, if you suspend the MH's a good 6-8" off the top of the tank, the intensity should seem much more like 4wpg, which is still high, but workable. It's going to be a tough tank to keep balanced, especially since you're just getting back into plants. Nutrients will get sucked up quick, causing you to have to test and dose far more often.
It's doable, I'm just trying to prepare you for the difficulty it might cause.
