Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com!!!
Your set-up looks great to start with. You must first ask yoursel what type of tank you desire...FO, FOWLR or reef. That will make a huge difference in the advice you recieve.

Great. You will need to look into some higher intensity lighting. Do yo have a fish list in mind? Start there and work in the coral depending on light.

Sounds good. You might also want to check out the lights on aquatraders.com, there are some really good deals.

Word of caution on aquatraders: most of the equipment is refurb equipment or equipment not covered by a manufacturer's warranty. People have not been too happy with the quality of the items shipped in the past as well. There are a few big threads on reefcentral about them.
