I want to learn to play the sax- need advice!?

I am interested in learning to play the saxaphone. Want to buy an instrument for 0 or less. I have found some used student selmer bundys (which I have come to find out is the best brand) for about that on ebay. Should I start with alto or tener? any other brands besides selmer &yamaha that can you recommend that are relatively cheap?(under 300) Any advice on how to teach myself- I want to take some lessons down the road but for now I think I just want to play around a bit. Any Dvd’s or books you can reccommend? Thanks!
