Binding recommendations (to buy online only)

Hi all, first of all congratulations for your community. I've been reading some of the threads here for some time and found many useful tips/information on how to get around snowboarding.
On to my question now. I'm just starting snowboarding and after a few days worth of riding, i fell in love with the sport and hated the rented equipment (wet/destroyed boots, generic board setup, malfunctioning bindings, etc).
So i decided to buy my own gear. So far i have opted for a safe choice of boots, based on peoples recommendations (32 Lashed) and as for the board i have concluded to the Ride Antic.
But im stuck at the bindings selection. Snowboarding is not a big thing where i live at hence there are no local shops selling snowboard equipment which makes the whole process so much harder.
So im asking for your help to shed some light on what type of bindings i should look for. Im looking for something not super expensive but durable that will match my boots and riding type (All mountain).

Thanks for considering my question.

EDIT: Boot size is UK8/US9

less than $200:
ride ex
k2 formula
rome arsenal
flux se30

less than $250:
rome 390 boss
burton cartel
k2 uprise
nitro raiden zero
ride revolt
flux sf45

a size medium would probably work for all theses

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

Damn, one of the few stores that ships here lists Burton cartel, Burton Custom and Burton Freestyle. The cartels are listed for 250 Euros. Thats approximately 325 USD.

Flux, Raiden, K2, and Ride will probably fit your 32's the best.

Snowboarding Is...

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