Good beginner bike

Hey guys, Im very new to bmx freestlye and I've been looking at bikes through danscomp and was wondering, would this be a good freestyle bike to start off with?
If not, what brand should I begin with? I've heard alot of people talk about DK and I decided I would look there first, although I found 2 bikes that might look good, I wanted to get a better look.

Verde Radia:

DK Eight Pack:

If I could just get some good suggestions on where to start, Im looking for a price range of around $225 - $325

Thanks for the help,
Bmxfreak014

Or just get a 6-Pack. But that would be too easy. Just look for something that is full chromo.
