Find some good boots first. Then you can get a binding that will work well with them, although most bindings don't have problems accompanying a wide range of boot shapes.
Most shops will take a hit on the retail margin if you buy your deck and bindings together. I personally don't like Mervin decks (Gnu/LibTech/Roxy) not because they aren't good, but because they are so damned expensive, I think there are just better options for that kind of money.
I hope DC stuff doesn't go the way of Gnu ... the curse of Quiksilever.
