Default Lights for 75 gallon?

I originally was told to purchase 2 t5's HO for my 75 gallon, after discovering this forum I realize it is a bit over kill, specially since I'm not planning on running Co2 anytime soon. Can anyone tell me what would be best to use for my set up?Also links of where to buy would be greatly appreciated.

currently what I have purchased, the tank is not quite set up so if anyone wants to buy these lights off of me let me know.

I have a low tech tank and use a Finnex Fugeray II 24 watt LED light.

originally I wanted to go led's but was told it would be very spendy for a 75 gallon.

Hoppy advised me to cover the lights with fiberglass insect screen. Works wonders to cut the lighting back and its a cheaper fix than buying another setup.
