Economical CFB for proofing images at 5000K.

I'm trying to refine my image editing and having purchased a i1display pro I've noted that the ambient colour temperature in my computer room is abysmal. While the lux is almost bang on, the colour temperature is about 2700K.

Does anyone know of any 5000-5500K bulbs that are fairly economical. The only ones I've seen that seem to have a good CRI are about $22 a pop.

I'm sure this is one of those bite the bullet things, but I thought I'd ask first to see.
