I am in the same boat as you and I decided on 2 classic 2217. From what I heard, the 2215 and 2213 may be too weak for that tank. However, this is simply what I have heard and not from experience. I am also going to run a CO2 reactor through one of the filters and probably a heater as well.
As far as lights, I went and bought the 4 lamp Tek system. I have had it very long to say if its great or not but I do know one thing is that its very bright, even with just 2 bulbs running. I went ahead and decided to get 2 giesmann midday bulbs and 2 aqua-medic planta bulbs. Once the planta bulbs come in, I'll turn on all 4 bulbs and post of picture of how it looks. I'm sure a 6 lamp would be better, but I cant' justify spending that much money for a light system when I could purchase other things needed. Hope this helps...
