beginner/intermediate board recommendation

I'm a longtime expert skier looking to get serious about boarding. I've spent about 30 hours on a board so far, found that I really enjoy it (aside from the bruised knees and butt) and want to buy a board that will not only be forgiving enough for a beginner but will allow me to progress through and perhaps beyond intermediate levels. I can't spend too much without pissing off my wife so my budget is limited to around $4 - 500. Oh, and I live in Korea so there is no such thing as powder or backcountry. Pretty much all groomed runs with ice and crud mixed in occasionally.

After spending a few days studying and browsing store websites, I am leaning towards purchasing the Burton Process Flying V 159 with Cartel EST Bindings. I wasn't thinking to go with Burton bindings as well but I've read a lot of good things about the EST system.

What do you guys think?
