As a general rule (except for K2), I'd stay away from snowboards manufactured by a ski company. They're generally sub-par. Is price an issue?

I wouldn't write off ski brands. atomic, salomon, rossignol, and k2 have come out with good stuff. k2 has just the biggest footprint so far, and deservedly so given their commitment; what I mean is that I would pretty much trust anything from k2, but I would do more research regarding products from the others...but not by a whole lot.

Yes money is an issue and I thought that spending 150$ for the rpm board and about 70$ for bindings will be enough no more than that, do u no of any other boards in that price range

So I guess you avoid any brand that's made in Elans factory too like Capita huh? You really should remove your head from your ass and wipe the shit from your eyes.

I have been a huge fan of the top end Rossi boards, ski companies can make a perfectly good snowboard, much of the technology, concepts and manufacturing processes are transferable. At this point Skiing and Snowboarding are taking tech from each other and its helping both sports grow.
