The sigma 70-300 will work with the D90.

The one with the built-in motor is so it will AF on the D3000, the D5000, and the other entry level Nikon dSLRs without their own AF motors. Since the D90 has its own motor, that doesn't matter. Also, btw, if that's the Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro or the APO DG Macro you're talking about (as in, not the OS stabilized version), the Tamron 70-300 Di LD is better and cheaper. It's also available motorized or not, and it does 1:2 macro too.
