Help on price for a used set-up

im new to boarding and am looking to buy a set-up, definately gotta go used though as im a poor college student lol.

So i found this set up in my craigslist:

2008 Forum Destroyer 154 - New condition
DC Ghost boots - size 10 (my size, so thats awesome)
Drake F60 bindings

Im 23, 5'10", 155lbs, size 10 shoe. I would like to ride mostly mountain and freestyle park. I used to skateboard a lot if that helps.

So my question is, is this a good set up for me? And how much would a good price be for this? thanks

Looks pretty solid, i dunno if anyone has anything to say about the Destroyer but the board is right about your size

you might want to try out the pair of boots before you promise anything...

I'm new to boarding as well, but from what I've been reading on the boards...boots are the most important thing, if they are comfy then consider the rest of the gear.
