For $150 is this a good deal?

I always wanted to get into studio work and was wondering if this was a good place to start and what else would I need. For example...would i need anything to connect my camera to the lights? I really don't know honestly except that I need wireless flash triggers for external flashes

You could also add the Yongnou RF602 (2 or 3 receivers and 1 trigger to start with), they trigger both types of light.
What strobes are you using or are they continous?

Well I have the Trigger already but I only have one receiver because I wanted to experiment with my 430EX II. Any advice on what strobes to get? I don't know much about my strobes at all honestly. This is just a link i was looking at but I had no intention of buying, atleast not yet for now until I feel more confident with my camera.

I just have a rebel xs that I would hopefully get to upgrade after saving up more money but for the simple portrait shots its doing a good job so far. Would love a new body though but it won't make me better so practice practice!

For $150 it will be just awful quality. Read this.
