Default Help a Newb

Hey all, beginner here. My first time snowboarding I was going down the hill way too fast and hit some ice and the board turned on me. I wasn't leaning back so the edge dug in. I hit the ground so hard. I felt my collar bone break the instant I hit. That was in 2006. I went last weekend for the first time since my accident. I was getting flashbacks and stuff. I eventually became more comfortable and it was a blast. I don't want to rent a board anymore though. Sorry, I'm rambling. I need some help on a setup. I'm 6'0", 176 lbs, size 12/13 boot. I was thinking of a softer wide board? It's income tax time so it doesn't have to be cheap. I don't know one brand from another so any input is appreciated.
