I'm getting prepared to buy a new rifle setup (my first one) this coming friday, when it occured to me that i literally know nothing about what to look for when it comes to rings and bases. So i guess my question is, what am I looking for when buying rings and bases.

will be going onto a M700 CDL 300 win mag not positive on which scope yet.

First and foremost, you gotta decide on a scope, 1" tube or 30mm.

After that, there is much more to discuss.

You will need base and rings - or integral base/ring combo.  Avoid the dovetail front and windage-adjustable rear setup, it is very failure-prone.

I've had great success with Talleys, and they make a base/ring combo that is very strong and pretty light-weight, that'd be on my short list.

The Talley Lt Wt's are very good.  I would also consider Dead Nutz base ring combos.  Both of these seem to be very popular right now.
