I think the pre-flash from your SB unit will set off any inexpensive background light pre-maturely.

I've tried to couple studio lights and SB units every way I can think of with no success (except putting a photo trigger on the SB and using it as the slave in manual mode).

Also, I had such good luck using and SB800 master with a 600 slave that I got two more 600's, the problem is they don't all go off consistently, the batteries run down at different rates so the re-cycle times can be maddeningly long and confusing.

Check ebay for used studio strobes when you make the jump.
