with your budget i would shop around for your board and bindings on craigs or ebay or local swaps. Just make sure they provide close-up photos so that you can see the condition of the base and the edges and make sure there isn't damage beyond shallow surface scratches to the base or minor cosmetic chips/cracks on the topsheet. you don't necessarily need to spend a lot on boots but you should be prepared to spend the most on them. You definitely need to go to your local shops and try them on and see which brands and models fit you the best and what flex you like. If you figure out which boots fit you really well and can find an online shop selling the previous year's model then that wouldn't be too bad (make sure there aren't drastic changes between the year you try on and the one you buy) but if you can't you'll have to buy the 2010 model and that won't be cheap.
where are you located by the way
