Choosing Bibliographic Reference Software

Please help! I'm a first year PhD student and I want to buy a student licence bibliographic referencing package for my laptop, which will link with MS word (windows xp). The two I've been looking at are ProCite and Reference Manager. At the moment I'm leaning towards the latter because my university has IT technicians trained to help with this, though the site licence for it has since lapsed. Does anyone have experience of these packages? Are they easy for non-techno whizzes to use? I'm very grateful for your advice...

Reference Manager is fantastic piece of software which I have used for sometime in NHS environment. There are excellent support materials via university IT departments. Most online databases are supported. RM 11.0.1 is latest version. Integrates seamlessly into Word (and Wordperfect).

I cannot recommend RM 11 highly enough.

thank you for your help Maturin. Could you please tell me whether it's easy or intuitive to learn how to use? I'm a bit of a software airhead....
