If the OP can afford a used D200 he can probably afford a new D3200. I own a D200 and while it is one of my fave Nikons, I wouldn't recommend it to a total rookie unless I felt he/she was feeling up to it. (At least a D200 has auto modes...) The D200 is a lot larger and almost twice the weight of a D3200. It's not the kind of camera one is likely to throw into a purse or coat pocket...

A new D3200 would come with a lens and a warranty; a D200 probably would not have either. It's simply too much camera for most beginners.

Unless a newbie expresses an interest in starting with a high-end DSLR and has money to burn, an entry-level camera that is relatively easy to use right out of the box is the way to go. If the OP really gets into photography he can upgrade the camera later.
