Default 20 long: 65 watt PC vs. Finnex Ray II vs. T5HO

I currently have a Current Sattelite 65 watt PC light over a 20 gallon long tank.
I'm looking to potentially upgrade my lighting to something else a bit more modern, specifically a Finnex Ray II 30" fixture when they're available. I've been looking at either this or a T5HO light.

Are these fixtures approximately equal as far as light output? (Based on the PAR charts, it looks like they are.)
Can anyone in similar situations comment as far as how happy they are with the Finnex Ray II, and why they chose it over other options?
I'm looking for a high light tank, but not insanely high.

Thanks!
