Beginner Gear advice: 32s, Carbon Credit, Lotus

Hi all. I'm currently taking lessons in Washington. So far I've only used rental equipment. I really love snowboarding and would like to buy my own gear.

Here's what I'm looking at:
Female, 5'7"
199lbs
riding beginner slopes on mountain

Boots:
32 Binary Boa or 32 Lashed Fastrack. I tried them on and they feel good. Not too stiff and not too soft.

I have not taken a look at bindings just yet. Suggestions??

As far as boards go. Should I go low level beginner like:
Salomon Lotus

OR beginner-Intermediate like
GNU Carbon Credit

There's about a $150 price difference. Just wondering if I'll benefit from the GNU since I'm a beginner.

If anyone has any other suggestions on boards or binding, please let me know.

Thanks.
