We have CLS for tt, ur D90 onboard can act as commander, but for outdoor location shoot where distance and bright conditions pose a prob for CLS, get a transmitter n receiver kind, personally using Phottix Aster, good for me ..

you pay a premium for reliability, especially when you are shooting for money.

for leisure, just get whatever you can afford.

The difference in the price is really about (1) reliability, (2) distance, and (3) built of the device. PocketWizards are like the industry standards.

The SB600 does not have a sync terminal (pls read http://sgstrobist.blogspot.com/2009/02/flashes-for-strobbing.html) and if you get a remote trigger, get one that has a hotshoe and that you can mount your flash directly on it (like this one: http://sgstrobist.blogspot.com/2010/01/pt-04-flash-triggers-for-nikon.html).
