Which scope mounts/rings? I have no idea need help!!!

in about an hour im purchasing a Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50mm and i need some rings and bases to go with it.
My only issue is i know nothing about them and dont knwo what im looking for. I need every pennie i can get for my montana elk hunt so i dont want to spend hundreds of dollars but i dont want to feel like i wasted my money,

Scott from liberty opitics suggested one of these;

Quote:
XTB-A-BOLT BRN A-BOLT REV MAT 2PC BASE

Burris XTB Xtreme Tactical Steel 2-Piece Base
Browning A-Bolt Short & Long Action - Reversible
Mil-Spec size cross slots fit any Weaver-Style or Picatinny ring


Or this one ($25) you can use Weaver style rings

WARM918919M
Description: BRNG ABOLT WSSM MAT 2PC BASE

Warne Maxima Steel 2-Piece Base - Matte
Browning A-Bolt WSSM


IOR Vtac rings, Burris XTR rings, or Leupold PRW rigs will work
What do you suggest?

For inexpensive rings/bases, I like the Talley one piece. They are less than $50 some times less than $40. They are the rings and the bases together. They work really well, are plenty strong on everything I've put them through. I've never had an issue with Talley stuff, ever.

I would get TPS rings and bases. Great buy for a excellent long range setup.
