i agree with lando. i have 2 tanks with sumps on both and they are great. I drilled the back of both tanks and used bulkheads and have never had anything close to a flood.
We all have heard horror stories about the overflow boxes, but if set up right they work very well also.
No matter which way you go that is one great deal...

I love my sump and the way it is set up there is no way it could overflow. In fact I kill power to it every time I feed so I do not pull food into my filter. Most of my circulation is from closed loop so it does not make a big difference in the tank other than the water level dropping 2 inches.

Sump or no sump he got a smoking deal on a tank that he can enjoy the hobby with. Man whatever you do with it I hope you have a good time, and remember even though sometimes it seems like a pain in the end its worth it.
