I think i would go for SS3.1beta3, or you could just go for 2.4.9 - not the new nice admin design, but it works.

SilverStripe can be a bit complex, it's not a CMS like Wordpress where you add modules and modules and then you have what you "kinda" want.
In SS, you code exactly what YOU want - once you get the basics, you will love it.

Read the tutorials and you will come a long way fast!

Good luck :o)
