LPS lighting for 75G

I currently have a 29G reef tank with some softies and LPS. For lighting, I have 2x 65W PC. I have to move the tank, so I have decided that I am going to upgrade to a 75G as part of that process. My intent is to go for moderate lighting, but am looking for advice on what type of fixture would qualify. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

you could go with 4x54 watt T5s but thats still enough lighting for some light lights close to the surface

I'm sorry, but I didn't quite understand this part "for some light lights close to the surface".

Under the T-5 options, would a six tube fixture be geared more toward SPS or should I be looking at that in planning a more moderate light tank?

Would PC lighting be appropriate for such a tank?

I am not familiar with LED lighting; is this a reasonable choice?

Thanks in advance,
Chris

ohhh crap i'm sorry i meant to write high lights

with 6 lamps you would be able to house anything you wanted and would be more efficient then a power compact option

LEDs are very pricey
