Kyle, it looks like that fixture takes 54W T5's which are the HO version on T5. If he has the one which comes with the bulbs your looking at $150 new plus taxes and possibly shipping. If it is really new in box then I would offer around $120 (~80%). I have never seen or heard of the brand before and with the little info provided its hard to say. The 5 year warranty is nice though.

T5s are more efficient, but T8s are really better. There was something on this thread about how the improvement in efficiency from T8 to T5 was small compared to costs.
As for using HO bulbs in regular fixtures, you can't. The sockets are different, for one, plus you would have to replace the ballast.
So to avoid starting a new thread:
I got the Sunleaves IV setup, new w/ bulbs for $100 and he threw in the hangers for them setup.
Now I just need to find a 4-ft rack for it!
And suggestions on where to get one?
Just need a basic wire rack, 4 foot long, not sure how deep (reccommendations?) and probably 3 or 4 shelves.
