One of the questions you will need to think about is if you want to do CO2. Without CO2, high light just gives you an algae farm.
If this is your first planted tank I would suggest not doing it and just going low medium light and get your feet wet that way. I say this not because CO2 is hard, but setting up a high tech tank involves a lot more capital expenditure, so I typically recommend against it until people really know that they like keeping planted tanks and are going to stick with it.
