Well what i'd suggest is borrow the chaos marine, space marine and tau empire codexes, and write up lists for each army. Then play the lists against your friend, proxying the models. Chances are he'll have models to spare for this purpose, or you can just use paper counters, etc. Then play games against him with the different lists, until you decide which army you like the most. THEN start the process of buying minis, etc etc.

I would agree, also read everything you can get your hands on about the background and maybe try painting a small squad of each army. The fluff and look of your army needs to appeal to you as much as the gameplay.
