You can find some really good deals at pawn shops. I got one for $100. It is about 6 years old and works just as well as my newer model.
The main feature you want to look for is WAAS. Nearly all modern Garmin and Magellan units are WAAS enabled. This gives you a bit more precise waypoint, when trying to find a cache (10-15 foot radius as opposed to 30-40 feet).
You live in the DFW are, don't you? I've got about 40 or so geocaches hidden around the greater Dallas area. And another dozen terracaches ranging out past Decatur. When you get up and running, you might want to hunt some of them up.
And here's a forum that has a lot of good info about caching in general but also in Texas, specifically. http://www.txga.net
