Need Help Buying New Gear

Hey guys,im new here, so im not exactly sure if this is the right place to put this question.But i got a couple of questions and was wondering if anyone could help me out. Im getting new gear this year and i need to choose some good stuff. I have a couple things in mind, but im not exactly sure, so i wanna take your guys opinion.

I ride mostly park, but i'll also ride down different trails with my friends

I have 3 boards in mind:
2010 Rome Machine
2010 Rome Graft
2010 Ride DH

I also have 2 bindings in mind:
Rome 390
Burton Cartel

And this is where im stuck, i dont know what to get so any help or opinions are appreciated.

i have a graft now its really nice. Its great for the park but then if you want to rip you can. Its super light and got great pop off jumps but still has enough weight to keep some speed. Kinda hard to go really fast but its a really fun board to ride i prefer the 09 style tho.

I got 390s they're great. Cartels are much stiffer than 390s though. 390s are between a mid and soft flex and I've never ridden cartels, but they have been said to be more on the stiff side of things.

Ya that might be a little big its still a fun board tho you might want to put boots on and see how it feels against the board

i wear an 11.5 burton freestyle for my boot and i still ride a regular board (i haven't found the need to go mid-wide or even a wide) Although i ride with a pretty duck footed stance +15* in the front, -15* in the back.
