Same old newbie questions

Age: 27
HT: 5'10"
WT: 190 - 200 lb
Size 11 shoe

I have been out 3 times this year and want to get a cheap beginner setup before the season is over. I'm looking for a versatile freeride setup that is competent in ice and powder, but I don't want to rule out the park completely. I have a $400 budget, and would prefer to spend more on boots and bindings.

So far I have picked out the following:

Forum Recon 161 ($149)
Rome 390 ($133)

The bindings seem to be a good bet, but I have read mixed things about Forum. Boots I plan on buying in-store (anyone recommend a store in NYC?).

Thanks for the help!
