Default Questions about gear for a Beginner

So far I have been renting gear and am currently looking for gear to buy. So far I have used a Head board via rental. Now I am 200lbs, 6ft tall, and wear a 12.5 US mens boot.

I am looking at getting either a Rossignol, Technine, or Rome board. I am looking at between a 159W and a 161. Since I have a 12.5 boot will I still need to get a Wide board if I get towards a 161. Is the waist width still the same at 161 as it would be at 159?

I have already gone out and sized out my boot and bought a Salomon Faction Boot.

As far as bindings go I am not sure what to look for. I have been searching around the net as to what is out there, but am hesitant to purchase anything based on the fact I know little about the particular brands that are out there.

Any advice as to what I should be looking for would be greatly appreciated.
