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!

Flow NXT-AT, Ride Deltas, Ride Optimos, Flux DS45's, or Union Data's.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

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.
