UV Sterilizer sizing?

How do you know what size UV to get? I have a 75 gallon tank. Is there a rule of thumb like cut the rated capicity in half? What about flow rate, again is there a rule of thumb or just follow the directions?

Thanks!

Although the UV equipment will be used on a freshwater tank, I have moved this post here since more SW hobbyists have experience with this equipment.

Here are some articles to get you started:
