First time buyer - Bindings

I guess I should start off by admitting that I'm fairly new to snowboarding. I grew up skiing, and have just gotten back in to things in the past year or so. I spent a week in Heavenly two years ago and wasted my time in West Virginia last spring break so I'm established on a board, but I'm just now buying my own gear and pushing myself. I'm going to make several trips this year, so I've decided to make the investment in my own gear.
I'm going to make several threads eventually, but my first hurdle is bindings.

I just had my birthday, and my dad ended up sending me a $100 card for Dicks. If you do'nt know Dicks is a pretty general sports store, and where I'm from (Georgia) there is absolutely no selection of physical inventory. So I have to resort to buying online.
In terms of their selection I want to try to take care of bindings before anything else since I can't try on the boots, and I'm still saving for the board.
I like the idea of Flows, so I guess I should start by asking if their as great as I hear they are. I have two friends who ride them and both love them so I would love the convenience. I don't plan on riding too hard quite yet. Mostly freeride and the beginning stages of pushing my luck in the park.
The selection of Flows on Dicks website is The Five, Flite 2s and Flite 3s.
So my question for you, buy the Flows and if so which ones? Or consider something else?

I guess I should add that I'm about 6'4" and 180 pounds. I'm going to be riding at Whistler this trip and plan on making another trip to either Tahoe or Utah before the season is over.
