CFL or LED advice wanted please

Ok so a friend of mine gave me his spare side light happend to be a 400 wt cfl dual spec. Currently in my small cab size in tag the temps are stable a little on the low side at 22 but thats with no extraction as of yet.  SO there i was thinking sweet ive got the lamp got the tent even got my old 4 inch rvk fan and filter.  But then it dawned on me.  Am I going to need lamp say 450 cfl (red ) to flower or can I get away with the dual spec ?? Or should i just sack off the cfl completely and get a cheap 300 led unit of the bay ???  i plan on only doing 2 plants 1 a whitey freeze auto  by rgsc, and either a auto night queen dutch passion or a auto uk cheese (dinafem)  Any advice re on the lamps  be cool  budget of about £50.00 max as i say ive got everything but the choice on a secondary lamp (if i need one ) is throwing me out re led vs cfl id iamgen i can get better bud production from the led but i maybe wrong thanks for any advice

Personally I'd spend a little bit more and get a decent light. Buy cheap buy twice and all that. How much are you going to spend on weed while you wait to get a crop? Maybe go without for 3 months or so and spend that money on a decent light. I certainly wouldn't try to flower with a cfl and a cheap led will be shit.
