I just went through this...
Bought a 55gal that came with a laminated particle board camlock-asembled stand like you mentioned. Not only that, the stand is basically an open "bookshelf" design with no vertical center support in the front at all! But the tank has been filled with water, gravel, everything for a week so far with no issues. I was watching it closely as I filled it and no bowing, warping, creaking sounds or otherwise.
I think as long as the stand is designed to be an aquarium stand for a 75 gallon tank it will hold the weight no problem.
