which knives to get

I am looking at purchasing my first kitchen knives, and cant decide what to do. I have read a ton about knives in the last week trying to decide what is best.
Now I decided to concentrate on the chefs knife, and whichever brand I chose I will get any other knives I want from that same brand.
I have read a ton of good reviews regarding the Victorinox Fibrox knives, and the price is great. Im also looking at the Wusthof Grand Prix II knives. Basically I cant decide how much money I am willing to spend on a knife, since the Wusthofs are more expensive.

So what I want to know, from anybody who has tried both types, is the Wusthof Grand Prix II set worth the extra money over the Victorinox knives? I know the usual answer is "try both out for feel", but unfortunately no local store carries either brand, so that is not possible. If there was a significant advantage to the Wusthof Grand Prix II knives, I would probably spend the extra money, but I want to make sure I am not better off just getting the Victorinox. I had also looked at the Henckels Classic.
