Someone has already quoted me from another thread, but I will answer anyway.
I have been here for around 3 years and seen all of the purchasing systems offered by this site.
I am begging you, please... if you plan on spending around $60 here, please buy prebuilds instead of boxes. Buying boxes will leave you feeling like you didn't get what you paid for, whereas buying prebuilt files will give you very solid files that you can actually use immediately. They will give you enough variety to explore most play styles and allow you to explore aspects of each sphere with confidence.
I would most strongly advise you to buy the new prebuilts as they are released at 500gran each, then consider afterwards which others I would buy (at 1500 gran).
You will need to spend at least $100 per set on gold boxes to get even a feeling that you have "most" of the set. in order to actually make a set viable, will likely need to spend on other sets as well to get key elements of decent files. The prebuilts are good files that have the required elements included. They are simply the only viable spending method for all but the big spenders.

What, I make legit points too...
