Welcome to Librarium Online!
Going to start an Ork army, and am really confused about where to start was going to buy:
-The Codex(pdf one is really inconvenient at times)
-An ebay auction for the AOBR ork lot
-Another set of Burnas/Lootas
-1 of the Nobz box set
Just wanted some feedback on if this sounded like a good plan and any other alternate suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Wow, that collection is pretty much perfect!
I'd go with...
AoBR warboss and ten nobs in the trukk. Give the nobz a Waaagh! banner, bosspole, 3 powerklaws, a big choppa and maybe a skorcha or two.
You have ten lootas, a good size
Split the warbikes into two units, each with a Nob with PK and bosspole
You've got enough boyz for one unit of 30 sluggas and one unit of 30 shootas (with three big shootas/rokkits) each led by a nob with PK and bosspole
Three koptas - run them together since you have two units of bikes
Oh, the painboy! I just saw that...put it with the Nobz.
Alternatively, instead of lootas you can have ten burnas in the trukk and hack up some figures to have a Warboss on a bike and Nobz unit on warbikes.....
For your next purchase, consider Killa Kans and a KFF big mek.
It looks like a nice start. Just keep in mind that the nobz only really work well when in trukks, and that a single trukk isn't going to last long against enemy shooting. Personally, I'd go ahead with Cossack's suggestion, using the nobz and warboss in the trukk, but I'd hold them in reserve, so they don't get stranded on turn 1-2. Hold them in reserve, and when they arrive, race them into close combat.
Another option is to use the nobz as kommandos, and just give the trukk to regular slugga boyz, held in reserve in the same way you'd hold the nobz back.
Finally, be sure to give each unit of boyz a nob, powerklaw, and bosspole, even if you have to convert them out of spare bits. Otherwise, the $25 nob set is a great investment for bits.

Thanks for the input guys. Will probably order this mess in the next day or 2.
