What do you plan on nailing? Will it be framing, finishing, brad tacking, stapling, roofing?
The best thing to do is go shopping. Visit your local hardware, big box or larger department stores (Sears, etc.) and just see what is out there and compare attributes and prices. We could tell you our favorites, but you will be the one using it and it will have to do the job for you and feel good, too. I have certain high end tools that the designers must have been on coffee break during a critical discussion period for certain things like handle angle or air slot for blowing dust from a saw line.
But, as I have stated before, once you start buying all these toys, it only gets worse. There are no support groups (except for here on the forum), and there is no cure. So enter at your own risk.

I wish you would have told me this before I started my "one room" renovation last year, now I got more money in tools than I got in the renovation!!
