Don't waste your money on upgrades for low end markers. Get as much field time as you can. You're ready for the next marker when you don't have to ask what to buy.

This

I made that mistake and put hundreds of dollars into a low end gun and after all was said and done I still had a low end gun.

You can dress up a turd...but at the end of the day; it's still a turd. Get field time. Save up. Buy a mid-level marker or a used high-end.

You know, the guy is probably excited to have got his first gun and you just called it a turd. That's a good way to kill the enthusiasm of a new player.

eforce's post was the best. You'll know it's time to upgrade when you don't have to ask what to buy. That's not to say you won't have questions about the markers you are considering buying, but rather than, "is this good" they will be "How light is marker x?" or "is the trigger on product Y adjustable or not?" because you'll have some idea of what's important to you and what isn't. Then you can be the judge of whether it's "good" or not.
