Default Starting snowboarding what goggles to get?

I ski'd before but got bored of it so now i want to snowboard and im buying new gear.
My choices came down to dragon dx polarized:
On Sale Dragon DX Polarized Goggles 2013

Dragon apx (although i think they might look kinda retarded once i see them irl)
On Sale Dragon APXs Goggles 2013

Electic eg 2 polarized (i have a fairly big head and wear like 7 3/4 for hat sizes so idk if i want eg 2.5 or just 2)
On Sale Electric EG2 Polarized Goggles 2013

Edit: i dont wear a helmet btw so it doesnt make a diff if they dont fit well with helmets

I don't know why you would need new goggles due to switching from skiing to snowboarding, but I agree with whatever logic you're using. Oh! I know why! You're a gear whore just like me.

Go with EG2's or be laughed at and hated by everyone on the mountain.

Another vote for the EG2 - but check that they work with your helmet (if you are using one).
And stay away from polarized.

lol my old ones are pretty old and shitty they fog up and have a scratch on the left side which is really annoying. I heard the eg 2s are good for fog and dont scratch easy

Look around before you buy, you can find EG2's for much cheaper if/when you settle on getting them.

Polarized is great when you're out on the water but becomes a liability on the snow. It can hide changes in snow conditions

Personally I would rather spend my money on getting the best board and bindings I could afford and pick up a cheaper goggle like the VZ fubars.
