If you don't want to be pulled regularly by the taxmen, stick to 4-5k.

Any higher the color changes, and you lose effectiveness(sp?) anyways.

I believe you spelt that right haha
And ya thata a good tip
4.5k imitates the color of sunlight
5k will be pure white
6k will be mainly white with a little light blue
8k will be light blue
