Default board given to me

i was given a salomon w5-164 board. i snowboard every year and just rent. i was gona buy some boots to go with it but i have big feet i wear size 13, weigh 200lbs and i'm 6'3. i have no idea about snowboards and sizing. does anybody have any idea if my boots would be too big for that board? i dont wana get like the toes draggin in the snow.do you know anything about this board, from what i gather its an old free ride board. i'm going to telluride and durango colorado in two weeks. was lookin at just bringing the board and buying stuff up north for it,i live in florida and go ride once a year.. any thoughts considerations would be good. any idea on the flex on the board also if anybody has rode one... whats the differences in an older board like that compared to a new one now. would i better renting a board (quality wise)compared to just riding this board for this year and then next year i'll just buy a new board.
