I found a used 90 gallon tank on kijiji that is pretty good looking, it comes with t5 lighting, a fluval 404 and a heater for $450. Do you think that's a good idea?

Sump. A sump is the way to go in a salt tank.

I thought I just need a good filter and a protein skimmer.

On a 90, no way. Sump is basically required (it's not really, but it helps a ton.) HOB filters won't get enough of the water through.
Sumps have tons of benefits:
-Extra water volume
-Hidden equipment
-Space for a refugium
And tons of other things that I just can't think of.
