Help choosing LED for 75 gal

I have a 75 gallon marine aquarium with a small amount of coral. Mushrooms and polyps nothing fancy. I currently use compact fluorescent lighting. I am having a major problem with too much evaporation and it is ruining the room I keep the tank. In want to cover it with a glass top and upgrade to LED lighting. I have around 400$ to spend. Can anyone tell me the best reef capable LED lighting system for around 400-450$? DIY is out of the question.
Thanks for your help!

Would you be able to hang the LED fixtures?

I would recommend the ecoxotic panorama marine led.

you probly can try couple of my $180 fixtures since you only running softies. 2 of them and the controller can provide you dimming options and for $420.
aQ.Simple 24" Bridgelux

PS: panorama works too but you will need few modules as well and you will mix and match different colors
