   So it really sounds like the R200 or the R300(M) might be a better
   choice for me, since I don't want to spend a ton of money here.  I
   know I'll be spending it on the paper/ink no matter what.   Or an 960
   might still be an ok choice?

Unless you really need the Ultrachrome inks, I'd go with the R200 or
R300.  They're cheaper than the 960 and better tuned.
