As you are determined and want to take up guitar seriously, I would suggest take a look at as many acoustics as you can, do not keep a budget in mind, atleast till you find the one you feel is right for you.

General things to look for when buying an acoustic are
Solid Top (Solid Spruce Top)
Low action - Space between the strings and the fret board
Neck - Does the neck feel good in your hands, is it comfortable to play with the neck?.
Size - Are you comfortable with the overall size of the guitar? Play it sitting and standing.
Hope it helps
