Which Regulator, Needle Valve Advice, CO2

Hey guys, new to the forum, but used to use it all the time for reference. I have been out of the game for a while now but the itch was getting to be too much, so I am looking to get back into it.

I am starting a high-tech setup, just in the planning phase right now. I found a few low-end regs, see below, and would like to know which would be the better option.

My price range is about $150 all in on CO2 equipment (don't judge me!)

I can get a 20# tank for dirt cheap through my job, so I would say I have $90 to spend on everything else.

Should I get a Fabco needle valve to put inline? (Anyone have one for sale, with barb fittings?)

Last question, which seems to be heavily debated, is what kind of reactor would be best for a 75g tank?
