So, based on your post, it seems budget is rather important to you. You are also new to the hobby, so specific advantages on the two which are in the same class probably aren't all that relevant.
Considering that, I'd go Associated. My reasoning:

On tower hobbies:

The Arrma is $300.
The Associated is $250

$50 easily gets you an appropriate LiPo for the Associated. In addition, this LiPo will be far superior to the NiMh in the Arrma.

So, unless you have a specific preference, I'd say Associated.

Either way, welcome to the hobby

Yep, that'd be fine. Make sure you get a LiPo charger too.

They are more expensive, but you'll eventually end up using LiPo if you stay in the hobby anyway, so it's worth spending money once now (and it wont be too much more given the truck + battery is cheaper than Arrma anyway)
