Default Stay where I'm at or upgrade

Well, first I'm greener than grass when it comes to snowboarding, but have been out a few times. I really enjoy it and am picking it up really quick. Right now I ride a 158cm MW because of my boot size (11.5) though I'm 5'9" and 155 lbs. It was a package deal that I got at the end of the season last year from Zumiez, their Aperture Spectrum reverse camber board, 32 boots, and Burton Freestyle bindings.

I have a chance at a Capita Quiver Killer 157cm board for a decent price and was wondering if I should pull the trigger. My concerns are would I need to upgrade my boots and bindings and is this board too advanced for my present skill level. I also want out of my board something to not only learn on but wont be board with once my skills improve, and I do improve rather quickly. Money is a bit of an issue so the board does have to last awhile, but I am older so I won't be doing much growing. I like to ride back country and regular slopes, not really into park, but also intrested in half pipe. Thanks.

If you're still in the learning process of boarding I suggest you hold off on buying the board and just keep riding what you have. This season try demo'ing boards of different tech of varying brands and really find out what you want to get. If money is tight for you, you should make sure that money is being spent on something you know for certain is what you want.
