Jose posted this, but figured I'd offer it up here as well:

"CREE XP-G LEDs, $7 each. These are very bright! 347 lumens per LED
when driven at 1000mA

Drivers, each driver can handle up to 14 LEDs, $26

24" heatsink, $35

fans, $10+

You could even get fancy and hook up a microcontroller to be able
to fully dim the lights as you wish!"

Not too bad, several threads here detail it, lots on reef sites.
