Used D90 vs used D5100 vs used D3300 - which is best among these as a first DSLR in 2016?

For roughly the same price now (around US$ 200), which one would you advice a beginner to get in 2016? I don't do videos, and I plan to shoot RAW to learn post processing as well. I intend to shoot landscape and portrait mostly, for now, and maybe later on invest money in a good macro lens. Right now, I have procured 2 lenses, both used, a 50 mm f/1.8D (autofous not too important) and a Tamron 70-300 f/4-5.6 (no optical stabilization), which together cost about US$ 170. I plan on getting a Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 soon, again used for about US$ 200. So, I can foresee spending $600 already for the bare essentials, and would like to experiment with only these and learn the basics for about a year, and then spend more money if required on gear, as I can't afford to spend more money right now since I'm on a tight budget.
