paint gun

paint gun. ok ive decided to paint my mini truck (beater) to get the hang of painting other than my old quarterpanel and the left over mustang trunk lid. i have an el-cheapo gravity feed gun for touch up work (i use it instead of rettlecan paint) and a low price suction type.

Ive been looking at buying a better paint gun, so i dont get splaters and insane overspray of my gravityfeed, and dont waste paint like in my suction feed gun (in too cheap to use the suction feed gun with 100$/quart paint.) now here is my question id like to get a HVLP gun but i dont think 4-500$ is a fair price, how cheaply can i buy a hvlp gun before it starts to show in the paint???

btw.For the people whove read my other posts on garage paint job: the color ive chosen is 2001 AUDI Nimbus grey, BC/CC. Im going to buy it from Spies & Hecker, and some of the paints like the build primer/sanding and the BC is water based high solid, all isocyanate stuff, and the clear is some solvent based

Does this affect paint gun choice and nossle size??
