since u said u wanna spend on clothing first....
id suggest u to head over to dogfunk.com or sierrasnowboard.com now for some really good deals on jackets and pants....
u wanna look for jackets/pants with waterproof rating and breathable rating of at least 10k.
also u want ur jacket and pants (pants especially) with taped seam.
as for gloves, as long as its waterproof and keeps u warm. I personally prefer softer gloves instead of those really rigid ones. Mitten is good too at keeping u warm, but provides less finger mobility.
generally burton, 686, foursquare, session, special blend are pretty popular.
then when it comes to goggles....
i would suggest u to go to ur local sports store and try on a few...it is important to find a goggle that will fit ur face. I personally have to look for special asian fit goggles coz the regular ones are too big for me and leaves gap at my nose bridge...so as long as u find a fitting pair...ur good to go. Generally smith, oakley, spy, von zipper and a few other are the more popular brands.
then here is a pretty good guide on buying and fitting boots.
if u really wanna make ur investment worth ur money, u need to do ur own research thoroughly. Every company have their good and bad product and alot of it are based on individuals preference.
