i would go with the 3w high power leds like some of these
<http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=3w+led+high+power&mfe=search&clk_rvr_id=1001013664436&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.X3w+led+high+power+star.TRS2&_nkw=3w+led+high+power+star&_sacat=0>
if you are going for white.
i've noticed the 3w-9w high power rgb led stars have three point sources
(look like colored squares) when focused on a distant point by a parabolic.
