Default Newbie Needs Help Buying Bindings!

So, I've got my gear, my boots, my board. Now I need some bindings. This should be easy, here's the info.

Boots - Burton Moto Size 10 (brand new)
Board - 2011 Never Summer 158 SL (brand new)
Bindings - ?

I'm riding all mountain basically and am a newbie. I get a discount at REI for being the spouse of an employee (thanks baby!). Here's a link to all the bindings I have to choose from. Anyone care to have a look and help a brother out? Thanks!

That was quick, thanks!

So... those all say they are freestyle bindings. If I'm going all mountain and mainly down the slopes, is there a big difference?

Freestyle bindings are generally softer/more forgiving and all-mountain bindings are generally stiffer. If your just learning i would suggest you say away from a super stiff bindings and go for something more in the middle range of stiffness for bindings. Out of those bindings i would suggest Union Forces or Burton Cartels. I've also heard some really good things about the Burton Prophecy but i haven't really looked into them.
