I am guessing you have not played much.  Consider the A5 or the 98C. Both are very easy to use and maintain.  The 98C is considered to be the AK-47 of the paintball marker.  The X7 mech. is similar to the A5 in it's feed system and easily Milsim'd.

FUAC!!!!!

Read this it will answer alot of your questions:
Accuracy depends on the barrel and ball:bore match
Range will be the same will any gun the only way to get added range is with either a flatline or apex barrel.

I would recommend an a5.  I own a 98 and i love its durability and performance, but there are alot of standard features on the a5 that make it a smarter buy.  Unlike the 98, the a5 has a closed action, which keeps dirt and debris out.  It is field strippable, and it comes with a feeder capable of 15bps without needing batteries.  for a 98 you would need a battery powered hopper or a cyclone upgrade which costs $70 alone.  
As for mods, each of those 3 guns has a myriad of accessories available.    
From what I gather, an x7 really isn't worth it unless you're into milsim.  I'm guessing you're a beginner so I would highly recommend the a5.
