If you're level 20 and you're fairly happy with your champion pool, then go for it. A full rune page is worth 1000g of stats or something, so you'll have an advantage over anyone who doesn't have them (and vice versa). They're a huge IP sink though, especially if you want more than 2 pages.

My recommendations for two cost effective starter pages:

9x Greater Attack Damage Marks (1845 IP)
9x Greater Magic Penetration Marks (3690 IP)
9x Greater Armor Seals (1845 IP)
9x Greater Scaling Magic Resist Glyphs (1845 IP - these are the ones that are described as "x magic resist at level 18")
3x Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage (3075 IP)
3x Greater Quintessence of Ability Power (3075 IP)

That's a total of 15375 IP, which is pretty hefty. However, you won't be able to use all of these straight away, so only buy what you can use initially (from memory this is 6 Marks/Seals/Glyphs and 2 Quints).

This organises into two pages depending on what the champion you're playing scales with:

Attack Damage:

9x Greater Attack Damage Marks
9x Greater Armor Seals
9x Greater Scaling Magic Resist Glyphs
3x Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage

Ability Power:

9x Greater Magic Penetration Marks
9x Greater Armor Seals
9x Greater Scaling Magic Resist Glyphs
3x Greater Quintessence of Ability Power

I'd buy the Armor seals and MR glyphs first, then the AD marks and quints (these are useful on almost any champion as they'll help with last hitting). Buy the MPen marks and AP quints after.

It's a bit early yet it seems, I'm still looking at champion pools and seeing which I like to play, but I'll go with that.

movespeed quints and put em on every page.

Only with movespeed quints can you pull off the big baits http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQCa0KqJ6hI

Agreed with what hase been said before, runes really make a ton of difference in the laning fase.

The two starter runes pages that Chug suggested are what you should go for, they will serve in most situations.
Movement speed runes are really great as well, they are better than flat AP in most cases, but don't use them on ADCs in my opinion.

Also, if you are playing ADC a lot I really recommend going for the lifesteal quints.
They are really pricy, but definately worth it on the champions that don't have a lot of AD scaling abilities.
I use it on nearly all my ADCs, apart from Caitlyn since she needs to be able to bully the opponent early game as she falls of during late game.

Basically, LS quints will allow you to trade a lot more with the opponent without having to go back to base to heal up.
Combined with 1 or 2 Dorans blades (+5 health per hit passive, stackable) you will have plenty of regen to stay and farm a lot.
A while back they nerfed the Lifesteal items, so the runes are actually really efficient.

Last one lock the door!

Inexperienced/bad players have bad positioning, movespeed quints are the best thing you can have when you start out. You can also get 3 points in Fleet of Foot and you have 6% additional movement speed which is crucial in this meta. If you play support and run 21 utility you'll have 11% movementspeed out of combat.

They are essentially core on any jungler besides weird ap picks like Karthus because they allow you to roam and gank way easier.

Outside of the two listed above I've also picked up in my time:

- An ADC page featuring two lifesteal quints and some Armour Penetration marks
- A page using movement speed quints and attack speed marks for quite a few junglers
- A support page with a bit of mana regen and gold-per-10 which I haven't used for a while
- A 'mostly armour' page for the tanky supports I seem to end up playing (Taric, Leona, maybe Thresh)

Rune prices are largely disgusting though (2k for move speed quints or something?)
