    I would use a primer formulated for new drywall...it will help stop the more expensive paint being sucked into the paper....still use a paint/primer combo though

    I paint for a living and do some drywall work. If you wanna use primer, have it tinted to the actual color of paint you are using to paint with. And with new drywall you can go with 2 coats of your straight wall color. If the drywall has been hung and you've waited a while to paint it then I would tint my primer to the color I'm using.
