Need help with equipment

I have decided to upgrade one of my Nuvo 38's to an 80 gallon rimless frag tank. I have someone building me a custom stand at around 40" in height (the tank is 48x24x16 high). So, my current tanks are all inclusive systems. I need to know the right size sump, skimmer, pump and lighting. I want LED's not T5's. I currently do have two kessil a350w but I want something a little better. Please let me know,

Sump - The biggst you can fit under the stand would be best.
Skimmer - rated 2x your tank and sump size, make sure it fits in the sump tho including head room.
Return pump - Here I would reccommend a DC pump as their prices have fallen dramatically. Diablo/speedwave and I believe waveline are all the same production line. I just go a Speedwave 2640gph for under $200 and it is pushing over 1500gph on the highest speed with over 7' headloss. 6 variable speeds to boot.
Lighting - Taotronics 120W x 2
