Default Need a New Board... Help!

Hey so I'm buying my first board soon. I want an all mountain board with banana tech and especially magne traction also I was told that I should get a board with a little more flex. The cheaper the better nothing over 300. I was looking at a Rossignol Taipan 156. I weigh 145 and have a shoe size of 10-10.5. will the board be too slim in the waist for my boot size? What other boards would be suitable for me? Thanks for the help! greatly appreciate it!

I am also looking at a Rossignol Trickstick and the GNU Carbon Credit Series BTX. Idk if this is good for carving though. Opinions? Also, how are the burton mission bindings compared to the other burton bindings that range around $100-140?
