Holy carp its a long post.
Thank you for the informative links Sedition, helped a lot, and aided me in making more educated decisions. I like the friendly vibe in this place, its a shame more Forums can't be this constructive... anywho...
I took the advice from there and went to three more sites to look around. They all were fairly similar in their statements. I'm going to take it to heart as information from people who have been where I am, and experienced enough to share with others.
I decided I'm going to go Freeride, though on some sites its called Powder, or All-Mountain boards. I've also decided on dropping some money on a new board instead of risking a used one that was used hard and has damage to one of the inner layers. I have a pretty good idea on what I need to be looking for, however I'd love feedback on if the decisions I'm making are good or not.
After looking at a few companies, I started leaning towards Prior's boards. The ones in question I'm looking at are the Khyber and the Spearhead.
I'm 5'11" (though I've read that doesn't matter as much), and I weigh 150 lbs (Will probably lose 3-7 pounds when I go back to America). So I picked the boards closest to 145 lbs(65 kgs) but included the ones that would be the second closest fit by what I've learned.

I've got boots that fit, should I assume that bindings that fit a size 9-12 (I wear 10.5's) will fit and get the Prior brand bindings, or does the brand not really matter?
I'll mostly be on the Applachians (Most notably in the Pennsylvania region, with trips up north with a few friends), I saw that region sometimes matters on the board you want.
Anything else I should be looking for?
On more personal notes...
I am in the Airforce (No Chairforce jokes you USAF nonners). I'm a Mechanic on the A-10. I'm not frontlines, but I deal with the same elements, minus the terrain, I work on a giant parking lot. I'm a Weapons System guy, so I load bombs and 30mm rounds, troubleshoot why things don't work, or pawn it off on other people to troubleshoot why things don't work. So I can fix them, or pawn it off to other people to fix them. Basically, on the A-10, we're incharge of all the things between the Button and the Boom.
If our replacements get in place and all things go well, I should be getting back to catch the tail end of some powder! Looks to be End Feb Early March.
