Which filter system should I use?

I am confused by the choices available for filters and filter systems. I think I want to use 4x6 filters with holders so I can step up to 77mm lenses someday and still use with the 72mm and smaller lenses I now have.

What choices are there in basic systems? I know of Cokin and Lee and reviews are often contradictory. Are there other choices? Why should I choose one system over another? There is no camera shop where I can see the choices available so I'm stuck with shopping online and that is hard to make accurate and informed comparisons.

What are you using and why? What do you recommend? I am having fun learning photography but never expect to sell a photo although I would like to take a few that I feel are good and represent what I saw. Budget is limited but I want something that I will not want to replace as soon as I start using it.

Thank you for whatever help and advice you can give.
