what's a good online guide to pick snowboard size?

i've been googling places and i get websites like about.com, which i dont really trust.

im looking for some legit websites that really know what theyre talkin about.

i'll also take recommendations here:
im 5'7''
180 lbs (i know that sounds overweight for my height, but im sorta athletic/muscular (just sorta), if that matters at all when choosing a snowboard)
23 years old, so i wont be growing anymore
9.5 shoe/boot size
intermediate in terms of skill. (i can handle pretty much all blues, some blacks, no moguls)
im thinking i'll go for a freeride board
my price range: under 500 for board+bindings

im looking to buy a board and bindings (i already own a pair of boots). i also have no idea what im doing when it comes to buying bindings. any tips on that?

if it matters i currently ride a k2 fatbob, burton custom bindings (i think), shaun white boots. the board and bindings are from like 2000, when i first started snowboarding.

I posted a link yesterday. The thread subject was something like "make this a sticky?" If do a search, you should be able to find the link.
