Lighting for 120 liters tank

Firstly, thank you for reading this. I am relatively a newbie when it comes to a planted tank.
My tank is 90cm long by 40 cm deep.
I have a CO2 system running.
Substrate is aquasoil.
Plants are: Dwarf Hairgrass, Monte Carlo, anubias and Ludwigia. might add some other easy plant later on.
The aquarium currently had one of those cheap ebay lights (link below)
Now I am always jealous how cheap some of the light are in USA. But here in Australia even Chihiros for my tank size are around $250.
My question is, what if I add two of those ebay lights to the tank? Does it make up for the lack of whatever it is those expensive lights have? These ebay light suppose to be full spectrum and all. So if they are weak, would having two make them more adequate ?
