FAQ Help? getting started on DIY lighting - hood

I plan on building my own hood and lighting.
I have been reading up on it, but am still a bit confused.

I have a 120gal tank I am trying to set up.
I plan on lots of live rock and would like to try inverts at some time...

I see the different light options that people use...

Is their a faq or website that outlines the good and bad of the units??

You looking for an overview of PC/T5/MH, or of retrofit kit brands?

Is your tank 48" long? What kind of coral do you plan on keeping? liveaquaria.com has a good section on lighting.
