I've been shopping for my first paintball gun after playing with some friends last weekend and I can't decide which one is the best value for the money when it comes to long term usage. I was reading about the Tippmann Cronus, A5 and X7 at pbreview.org and I'm currently leaning towards the A5 for customization reasons. Or should I just save up and get the X7?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You mean the X7 Phenom when youīre talking about the X7 ???
Shure the Phenom go a better valve System no blow black like A5 etc.

Cheap and good, for a Long time, i would say an A5 with RT would give you for a Long time fun. Compact, low Profile, RT perfect for each Situation quick FA or Burst or just semi Shooting. Shure the cyclonefeed isnīt that soft to paintballs like a good e-hopper but if ... you can buy a replacement feedneck for hopper use. Normal field paint runīs fine but easy breaking tournament paint will be not ideal for cyclonefeeds. Safe the cash and donīt buy any ... Upgrades like for cyclonefeed or hammer, powertube etc. stay stock and sheīs running fine under each condition.

The only upgrade i would check is a drop Forward(may with On/Off ASA), to get a good Position for your tank, in a right distance and angle, so she getīs Close to good handle like a speedballmarker.

An A5 runīs fine with CO2 but Spoolers(Valves and Regīs) like the X7 Phenom, Crossover and T(i)PX have a hard life if Shooting much(and quick), on cold days etc. itīs very cold stuff which lets your grease getting into something like snow and after blown away by pressure !
So HPA if possible is the best choice !!! (Use a tank with an output pressure of more than ca. 800psi for run an A5)

The stock Barrel is fine as Long the paint isnīt to small, also think about each time, worse paint will fly also worse out of each marker, may soft accelerated paint by expensive gunīs may got less drift but ...

Think about a used one, would safe also cash !!!
I like Tippmann !!!
