48 inch retrofit kit

I am having some trouble finding a good retrofit kit for my 90 gallon tank. I don't want to have to redo the lights so I am making sure that I have more than enough wattage for any kind of coral in the future. I was thinking something that has 2x250w HQI halides about 200w of T5's or PC's and lunar leds. I can't seem to find a kit that offers these options anywhere. Is this way too much lighting for a 90 gallon or am I on the right track? Are there any companies out there that offer a kit like this? My canopy is about 9 inches tall with an open back. Some kits offer 100watts of T5's but I think that for a 90 gallon 200w would be more appropriate.

My 125gallon tank has 3 250w MH's, and 4 96w PC Bulbs. That sounds about right for a 90 gallon.
