Do some research, learn stuff. Save up for something good, you'll be happier in the end. What are you looking for anyways?

I'm not going all out on the BMX scene so I'm not willing to spend over 200 dollars on one. Maybe when I really like the style of riding I'll invest in a better bike. I'm just looking for something to ride to and from places, I'll probably be getting a single speed for college later on but for now I want to ride a BMX and maybe learn few tricks. Do you think either one of those is a good buy?

I think between the two of those it's a push. Both have 1 piece cranks and are roughly the same production year. Everything about the pics looks like the difference between the bikes is the $ 15 cash.

Well, you might be able to score a used bike for a few less, maybe even offer less than the price listed. There are rarely used & pricier bmx's in the range you indicate won't pay, slightly under and even just beyond that. Those are probably the best deals when you factor what a LBS sells a new one for that's considered highest end equipment.
