Default 150W HPS for Tomato Plant

My local hydro store has a sale on Sun System 150W hps lamps ($30) and I was thinking of getting 4. If I arranged them in a square pattern, would that be enough light for a 3 foot tall determinate tomato plant? Would the bottom not be getting enough lumens? I would think keeping the lights a foot away from the top of the plant would keep it from getting too warm.

Or, should I just go for a 400W for a little more? ($150)
