Lighting for a 65 gallon Hexagon Tank

I am putting together a 65 gallon planted tank. I am trying to find the cheapest lighting option possible that will still be effective for growing low to medium light plants. Thanks for any advice!

Spiral CFLs would probably be your best bet for an inexpensive solution. There aren't a lot of good options for hex tanks because they're so tall and narrow. Some people use a single Kessil LED which is an elegant solution but they cost a fortune. I don't own a hex tank though so others may be able to point you in a better direction.
