Im a noob just starting out and I have always loved the space marines. I think they look great and love the fluff, plus they're well rounded. However, I also know that space marines are common for noob's and I would like more of a challenge by taking and army that is less well rounded. I was thinking of the tau because I love their futuristic technology and they are very shooty. Now the question is, is it a bad idea to start two armies at once? If i get enough cash I can get a few units to start with for each. What do you think?

It is not bad but can get quite expensive and makes the "ins and outs" of each army harder to learn. Also learning to styles of warfare at once often means that you will lose many of your first games (even more than usual).
On the other hand if you have the money I say go for it. Doing two armies at once lets you have some variety and keeps you form getting bored early. You'll probably end up liking one army more than the other anyway and build them up for a while. Then come back to the other army later on.
I started two armies at once also. My progression with the game was slow, but eventualy I came out alright. Just remember, you might not win as many battles at first if you don't specialize in one army.
I started with three, all i had to worry about was how much it was costing.
As long as you have enough cash, you will be alright.
it also helps that i have a weird memory which makes it so that i'll remember all of the rules . . .

Many armies are good as long as you paint models when you get them, and play tons of small games just to get the feel of your army.

I'm currently collecting three armies at a time..
- slower to get large armies for gaming as it costs more (not that you're getting less)
- you'll need to get a bunch of extra paints and a few extra brushes
- I usually get sick of painting one type of army for a bit, so I can just switch and paint a different one
- you'll end up collecting these other armies anyway
- you can make conversions with extra arms and stuff on the sprues of the different armies
... its all up to how fast you want to get an army up and ready for playing.
i collected 1 army at the beginning, when i had at least a 1000 pt list, i started a second army. so all of my armies were balanced, and i had time to learn about each army before starting another
I collect DE, WH, nids, and if I get bored with these i make some chaos just for fun. I also collect lizardmen for WHFB and want tp start a cult of slaanesh. What does all this add up to? I have about 5 unfinished armies! O dear. I really need to finish an army <_<
