First Time Buyer please give me advice

So I decided to finally purchase a set. I've done a little research and come up with a few different choices. Tell what you guys think. I'm mostly concerned about the board. I want a relatively cheap one but that would treat me well once I get more experienced. Thanks guys

can't really tell you much on the boards without knowing your desired style of riding, the rest sounds good.

salomon strobe, neversummer heritage, unity dominion/rise, k2 eldorado/zeppelin, rossignol scope/storm would all be good choices. the never summer has a 3 year warranty and the unity has a two year warranty. and try to get something around 158-160

heads up on the bindings: if you don't mind last year's models, my local dick's sporting goods had them for $95, and there was a $10 off coupon for anything over $50 that expires tomorrow, so I'd look there.

Oh, and the Coors web site has a NeverSummer board for ~150 + 15 shipping I think, 160cm. Basic board, but its a cheap price for a NeverSummer form what I've heard.
