Smile Build me a setup for $800!

Hi, I'm a beginning snowboarder transitioning to intermediate. I mostly like to ride down groomers, but I am thinking about getting into the park later. I ride in the Poconos, specifically areas such as Blue Mountain and Camelback.I have an old Atomic rental board that has done well enough to help me learn how to link turns, brake and such, but I'm thinking about getting my own stuff now.

I need:
Boots
Bindings
Board
Goggles

I have around $800 to work with. I'm thinking about getting a blank white snowboard from blanksnowboards.com, but I'm open to whatever you guys think I should get. I also heard that the Burton EST bindings are good?

For goggles, I heard that the Dragon Mace's are nice. I know that the fit of the goggles depends on your face, but from this website what do you think is the all-around best goggle for the price?
Goggles from Departmentofgoods.com

Thanks for your time and help!
