New to this, need some help.

Hey, new to the forums here, and vehicle sound systems in general. Some of my terms may be simple, but I'll do the best I can to explain myself.

I've been driving a '98 Neon for a couple years now with stock audio and want to throw in a new deck.

I'm not going to bother with speakers/sub/amp right now because I will be buying a new car in a month or two. Most likely a '91 Grand Prix coupe owned by my boss that I've had my eye on and want to fix up real nice. That's another post for another time though, which I'll surely be back for.

Back on topic, I want a deck that I can use in the Neon for a bit and then transfer to the new car after getting rid of the old. There are a lot of choices and it's a hard decision that I could use some guidance with.

Here's what I'm looking for:

I don't really need satellite radio or bluetooth readiness, as I can't foresee using either tech in the future. I do want HD radio but I'm pretty sure most decks have that covered.

What I want the most though is a RCA input. My new MP3 player (Zen Vision W, if it matters) comes with an AV out that would be perfect to use in the car. It uses a set volume when outputting in this mode so I don't have to mess with the volume of the player versus the volume of the deck like I did with my old player.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I want to spend up to $200, maybe more if it's worth it, on the deck. Looking at Best Buy primarily, they have a great online sale going now.

I'm here to learn as much as I can about this stuff, so any info is welcomed.

Have a look at the Pioneer Premiere DEHP390MP for starters.
