Lighting for 90 Gal Reef

I have decided to buy a 90Gal reef ready aquarium, got the stand yesterday and will be getting the tank shortly(pics will come soon) Im shopping for lighting fixtures. Will a 4 bulb T5HO fixture be enough light for a standard 90Gal or should I go with the 6 bulb fixture?

Go 6 if you have any hope of using or anything other than FOWLR

I would prefer the T5HO for a number of reasons. The 6 bulb fixture will be plenty to support reef, wont it?
