Overflow box Question for 29 Gallon

Im trying to setup a sump for my 29 gallon but am a little worried about the proper GPH for the overflow box. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Moved to hardware/equipment forum:

Even the smallest overflows are rated for at least 300 GPH which gives you your basic 10 times turnover. Personally I'd get a 600-800 GPH overflow so you won't be limited.

Which overflow boxes are you looking at? Which pumps?

If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
