Starting a 75 (my first SW)

This is my first salt water tank and the build is going to take awhile but I am looking into equipment and doing some research and will have a ton of questions. I want to try and do it right the first time and not spend a fortune. I realize it isn't cheap. My first question is I am looking at power heads. I have decided on 2 Hydro Koralia Evolution power heads with the wave controller I just dont know what size to get. Can I go to big? I am thinking 1150 or 1500 or is the 850 enough? Or do you have a better recommendation on a similar set up? Thanks in advance and hope you can all help me with this process.

I have a 60g with 2 1150 and it's plenty of flow, I have no dead spots, great surface agitation and the fish go nuts with all of the movement. A 75 is 48" too, right? I'd say 2 of the 1150s should be fine
