Any tips on what I should be looking for though? I really have no idea but I would love to see the rings of saturn or moons of jupiter.
Or am I asking too much for such little cash?.

Number one, a reflector as opposed to a refractor. 4 inch mirror, minimum.
Refractor images deteriorate especially at higher powers. Reflector images travel through less glass. Not just the scope body and brand name is critical but the lenses you choose and the location, location, location to view from. Its a science. Read up on member suggestions before you buy. Maybe it will cost more than a paycheck.
You need a refactor for terrestrial. Reflectors are useless for that.
