Floodlight replacement?

Currently have a 300watt halogen floodlight over my garage wired to a second floodlight down an unlight pathway.
The main floodlight has an integral relay to allow power to second light, problem being the PAR has decided to pack up!
Suggestions on a suitable replacement for main light bearing in mind most replacements use LED lights and switch relay non existant.

LED is the way to go, they last longer and use less power. The best I've found on a tight budget was in Home Bargains.

I have (qualified) mates who are supplying the feeding frenzy amongst a certain type of indoor home gardener . Daylight and mixed colour LED arrays. Their mark-ups are astonishing.
