I bought a Rossi Circuit (2009) and had Rossi Viper bindings. I upgraded the bindings to Union Forces - The Vipers weren't that great. Easy entry, but they just loosened all the time when riding and felt cheap in general.
The Rossi Circuit is a good beginner board. I learned to snowboard this season and have ridden the Circuit about 7 trips (10 days total), but I learned how to carve and go down blues and blacks and even boardslide and butter with it. I learned the basics with this board, but I'm definitely looking to upgrade to a intermediate or a more "advanced" board.
But yeah, there might be better boards out there for you to learn on. Try sierra snowboard - their sierra reverse crew is like $240 and the Sierra Crew is $200. I'm thinking about buying the reverse crew.. which is essentially Burton's V-Rocker, but I just bought the Circuit and I would feel like a dumbass for buying 2 new boards in 1 season lol.
