Fluorescent Recessed Lighting

For my new construction with 8 lights, is it really worth it to install fluorescent recessed lighting kits with ballasts in them or use regular recessed kits and fluorescent bulbs with ballasts. The recessed can kits lights are about $35/each for fluorescent vs $10/each for regular.

Well, future replacement lamp costs will be less expensive in a ballasted fixture VS. a ballasted lamp.

Also, you can get a much broader color range selection in non ballasted C.F. lamps.
