Agreed. Custom over Custom X
But for further advice, what makes you want to spend that much money on a first set-up? One that IMHO you're not good enough to appreciate yet. I don't know what Burtons pricing is for '10 but for last season your minimum cost for a Custom ICS and ICS bindings was $800, not including boots. Thats a lot. My dream set-up of all time costs just a little more than that...with boots!
If you want a beginner freindly board that you can progress on and even kill it with once you are a better rider, look at boards like the CAPiTA Quiver Killer, K2 Believer, Ride Antic... much more affordable boards that don't limit you to buying $250 and up bindings. Instead of dropping $800 on a setup, you can easily drop to $550. For the ultimate penny pincher setup thats still worth riding, get a CAPiTA Stairmaster and Union Cadet DLX. That will run you $490 plus tax (+shipping if you order online from somewhere that charges it).
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
