I have a 02 WRX and I want to put a boost controller in, which type is the best for scubies or should i even worry about it?

how much do you want to spend and how much time do you want to spend setting it up. I had a AVC-R in my dsm. Works great takes allot a patience to set up right. Now I am using and HKS EZ-EVC for now, and it works well.

You can find a used Utec for $800 shipped

That would be your best bet

If you don't know what the Utec is....

I'd just wait and get the utec. Its a waste of money to spend like $400-$700 on a boost controller when you can do it with a utec, as well as tons of other stuff. Just save the money and do some of the "free" boost hacks for now.
