Default Looking for Second set of equipment - Suggestions?!?!

Hey!

So I've been snowboarding for 3 years now, and have been riding on the same equipment:

Board: 2010 Nitro Lectra 142
Bindings: Forum (no clue which kind. probably 2009/2010)
Boots: Burton (may be mens. my bf has the exact same ones. sales person said it was unisex)

This was my beginners set and i believe that i'm good enough to upgrade my equipment.
i am female, 5'6" can handle blacks/double blacks no problem. recently started small jumps and jibbing.
I believe i would like to progress with jumps (and eventually half pipe) and ground tricks (presses, butters, etc).... there are too many different boards/bindings/boots out there and i don't know where to start. was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. It's also kinda frustrating that a lot of your great recommendations are for men's equipment.... was wondering if getting gear for men would make a big difference. please advise. Thanks.
