I don't have any experience with that specific board/binding combo, but I do have a lot of experience at bargain shopping lol. I'd offer 80 and probably max at 100 on something like that. These guys are spot on, check the outlet stores and used gear sites, but if it's a matter of you only have X amount for board/bindings and boots, I'd say spend more on boots, they will make or break your day. Like what David Z was getting at, ask a lot of questions about the use and care of the board. Big difference between used once and tossed in the garage rafters with the bindings still on vs. used for a couple days a year for years,waxed and, put away with bindings dismounted vs. beat on and worn the hell out. Inspect the deck closely for any repairs on the base, dings on the edges, top sheet for any delamination and the bindings for any warp in the bases. At your level the tech/ride of the set up will be fine for a season or two depending on how much and how aggressive you ride. All that being said I would still look for last years models on close out and get something newer.
**On a side note: Checked out geartrade.com, looked good but the search function sucks nuts!!
