I have to agree with zakk, I think boots should be your best investment as a beginner... Sure you want a good board but your gonna grow out of a beginner board really fast. So there is no point in spending that kind of money right now. Bindings are a give and take for me... I didn't need to up grade my bindings till this year and I have been riding for 3 years now, but didn't really start getting into the sport till last year. I didn't need a "good" set of bindings because I wasn't riding hard or doing any back country till now.
I LOVE my flows and think they are a GREAT beginner binding but your could find cheaper. Also if you have a big foot I would go with a normal cinch binding. Flows can destroy your boots if they are to big for the binding.
Anywho, hope I helped a little.
