Need a new Bike

At the moment I have a 6 year old Gyno GT bike and as much as I love it, the quality is for ****. I really need a new bike and I'm doing all I can to save up money, selling my little kid stuff, trying to find little jobs, and eventually sell the GT. Anyway, I'm looking to save up about a max of about $400. I have looked up a bunch about what new bike I should get. I'm looking to buy a bike that is mostly made for dirt but can also to street fairly well. I'm about 5' 7"-8". Since my last bike I didn't really start riding till about a month ago, I'm fairly new to BMX to any tips would be great.

Look for a bike that has a full chromoly frame, and pretty much everything else chromoly. For about $400, I would look at the 2008 DK 4-Pack if Dan's still has it by the time you get the bike. If not, get a DK Helio, Kink Transition, or Stolen Heist for a little more.
