new tank equipment list

Hello everyone,

I have been reading up on saltwater tanks for a few months now and i think i am ready to get started.

I have a 75 gallon tank with a 30 gallon sump. below is the equipment i am thinking about purchasing but before i sink all the money into bad equipment i would love some input/recommendations on the list of stuff.

JBJ T3-500 True Temp Heating System w/ Controller & Titanium Heating Element 500W

Lifegard Aquatics Quiet One Aquarium Pump 3000 818 GPH

Reef Octopus 4 (100 Gallon) In Sump Needle Wheel Protein Skimmer w/ Bubble Plate

CPR CS100 Overflow Box 800 GPH

Marineland Maxi-Jet 1200 Pro Powerhead (295/1300 GPH)

Captive Purity 75 GPD RO/DI Pro RO/DI Filter System - Clear Canisters

Let me know what you guys think, if there is anything bad listed there let me know so i don't waste my money.
