Default Advice on New Board

Hey Everyone,
I'm about to buy my first snow board and could use some advice. I'd consider myself an intermediate snowboarder but I have just always rented. I mainly just ride the mountains and hit trails and natural jumps. Ive done a fair amount of research on board types and sizes based on my style and size but lack the experience to tell me whats best. I'm 6'1, 180 Lbs, and size 11 shoe. I'd like my spending range to stay below $400. Here are my top finds so far.

LTD Enigma Platinum

Sierra Reverse Crew

From what I gather, the Sierra Crew would be a very solid board my only issue with it is the size, Its largest sizes are the 160W and the 158. Im kinda tall and I think I would need around a 163. $250.

The Sierra Reverse Crew 162 Looks like a good substitute for the Sierra Crew only in my size, I'm just not sure what the main differences are or if I could get something better for the $300.

I'm not sure how good of board the LTD Enigma Platinum is, but I like it and it comes in size 163. $240.

Like I said I'd just like some advice from someone experienced and knowledgeable because i lack both when it comes to serious snowboarding. Which of these would be best? Also feel free to recommend something else. Thanks!
