Is my lighting adequate?

I have a 48" odyssea power compact light. It has 2 x 65 watt 12,000k daylight bulbs, 2 x 65 watt Actinic true 03 bulbs, and 8 LED Blue moon lights. I am going for a reef aquarium and was just wondering if this light be good enough for what i need.

55 gallon Aquarium, 75 lbs. Live rock, 760 watt Metal Halide Lighting , Started new in July 2008.

I would say it will be OK for LPS and soft corals. SPS corals I would worry about not being enough for.
