What do you think of the suggestions in this guide? I know the mask is the most important so I am looking for suggestions on masks, tanks, hopper and marker. . I am open to any suggestions on anything I listed. I am also open to people suggesting what I should buy used. Again i'm not positive I want to really get into this so I don't want to drop more than I was said before.
Here is my list of things i'm thinking of getting and I would like pro/cons of my selection:
Mask: Invert Avatar
Air: 68/4500.. dont know which one to buy
Hopper: Proto Primo
Marker: Spyder Fenix/?? I am very open to suggestions on markers!

Good replies guys... yeah my best bet is to go used for sure. I like JellyFilled suggestion about the eNMEy. Should I use CO2 or invest in the HPA tank now so I can use it later for a mid-high gun?
That depends where you play.
First, keep in mind that while most entry-level markers will run happily on both CO2 or HPA, anything nicer than a GoG gun is going probably going to require HPA use only.
If you're going to be playing at a commercial field that offers unlimited air fills with admission (and a lot of them do) an HPA tank, even a small cheap one, will pay for itself rather quickly.
On the other hand, if you're going to be playing on your friend's farm or something, miles from any pro-shop that could fill tanks, multiple 20oz CO2 tanks will be a much probably be the better choice to last you through the day.
Also, if you live up north or plan to play in colder weather, the performance gap between CO2 and HPA will widen.

Well i'm sure it's going to be a mix of woods play and tourny style. I live in western PA so we have harsher seasons. I think most of my play will be at a commercial field as opposed to woods/farm areas. Please let me know if you think co2 or HPA is better for western PA.
Do these fields offer unlimited air fills included with entry?
It should tell you on their websites, or you could call and ask.

Tank:I say used or a ans owned with a crossfire reg but a good reg is not as important as everyone says it is at least to a begginer.
Hopper:valken vmax invert too or pinokio or used superloader
Gun wait and save:but if you must I say a gog enemy or azodin blitz but save up for a etha gog extcy proto rail or mini if it fits your hand and if you want to splurge axe,proto reflex rail, or etek 3
And welcome to paintball warning it will consume your life time and money
