New Board: Burton King vs. Salomon Patrol

Looking at getting a little bit more active with snowboarding. I've been riding an old sims search 65 that I picked up used on ebay years ago. At this point its a bit dinged up and I've gotten a bit fatter. I'm 6'2" 240-250lbs (Working on dropping a few pounds before the season gets started up though) with a size 12-13 boot. I'd probably be called an advanced beginner/lower intermediate. Right now I'm looking at picking up a 07 salomon patrol 167 or an 08 burton king 165. The few reviews on the Patrol have been good, but the king looks like a good board as well. I just ride freestyle, don't ever hit the park. I'll probably be mostly riding the mountains in North Carolina, so probably a good bit of manmade snow with the occasional trip out west. Does anyone have any experience with these boards, or have any suggestions in the $2-250 range? I don't mind buying used, but last time I kinda got jipped. Thanks!
