Don't forget a stat is essential! Not only do they give you control but they save you money on running costs!

Halogen can be a real asset as depending on brand they emit a huge amount more heat than standard tungsten spots and are less inclined to burn out early.

I can only speak for my brand which is internally reflected with a thick metal reflector and a high quality halogen capsule.

As a rule of thumb a halogen is twice as efficient as tungsten. So a 50watt halogen will do the job of a 100watt tungsten.

So for you with regard to my brand you would need 50w for your viv,

All the best
