you wanna stay away from frames that are made of high-ten steel, it's brittle and prone to breaking.

Try to avoid frames that say they have Chromoly DT or TT cause they're in most if not all cases half hi-tensile steel, always look for "Full chromoly" or 100% chromoly frames" all after market frames are like this.
Unfortunately frames are expensive in fact the average price is of 300 but you can get some cheaper ones like the ones Big_ol_schlong showed you.

Yes, you want full chromo, even if you're just starting as you get better the hi ten steel frame isn't going to be good.

YES!!!! I would actually buy that or the WTP Zodiac. Both awesome and will last you a long time before you will have to get new parts. You can also change the drive side which is cool because if you end up being right foot forward, you won't want to grind on your drive side.

Acually after a second thought most bikes that are dt and tt cromo aren't to good half sealed bearings and stuff get a full cromo bmx it'll be better in the long run.

Chromoly has nothing to do with sealed bearings or not...

If your funds are tight and as you stated your a beginner rider. I think a Hi-Ten frame would be fine. You can get a nicely equipped complete, and while progressing your riding save up for an aftermarket frame to put all your parts on.
