Default 160cm or 163cm? Please help!

I just recently started snowboarding and have gone a few times and decided I wanted to get my own board now. I just bought a 2011 Flow Merc 160cm wide. Im kinda worried that I bought it a bit too small though.

Im 6'2 and weight somewhere between 195-200 pounds with a boot size of 11. I did a lot of research and the snowboard calculator suggested around a 164, but as I looked further I read that a smaller board is best to learn on and will be easier to handle so thats why I went 160cm.

Im not very experienced so I couldnt say what I typically ride on. So from that alone you can probably tell Im a rookie. Im just looking to get better, get my carving down, and practice switch on the easy slopes. Did I get the right size or should I return it for the 163cm or does the 3cm really even make a difference?

Thanks for any help!
