Looking for hand saws

I'm looking for both a crosscut and a ripsaw. I can't pay a lot at this time, so my question is if the saws at menards and lowes are fine, like the stanleys under $15, or should I just put out and buy something better? If I need to spend the money I will, but if the cheaper saws are fine I'd like to go that way for now.

Some what confused as to what type of saw you are looking for - a single saw that does both crosscut and ripping, OR 2 separate saws for those operations. The reply from rcp612 is a good answer if your intention is to do BOTH crosscut & ripping with one saw. Be safe.

Ah, yes I could see where that could be confusing. I would like to buy two saws, one for each. I find much less frustration having specific-use tools, even on a budget.

I saw this article from Popular Woodworking a while back - looks like these saws he recommends would work for you. http://www.popularwoodworking.com/wo...-saws-part-1-2

I checked Ace, Menards, Lowes, Hardware Hank, True Value, Acme Tools, And Sears. I cannot find a rip saw anywhere in town. There is something wrong with this.
