I'm an expat looking for a good bank that serves Nevada, if I can sign up.

I live in Asia and am attempting to relocate myself residence-wise to Nevada. Right now I'm a resident of New Hampshire and have 2 bank accounts there. One is at a local credit union which gives me great deals on things I need, like sending money home and withdrawing money from atms internationally. Bank of America is my other bank, which has horrible rates on a lot of stuff, but allows me to pay my credit cards easily.
So I've set up an address in Nevada and am now looking for a good bank that hopefully can do everything I want.
-Cheap fees / no fees on international wires
-No international atm fees (other than exchange rates)
-Billpay or some sort of system that allows me to pay off my credit cards
-Offers credit cards ( i think i want this, i guess i could get a credit card from elsewhere)
-Free online checking account with no or small minimum balance ($1000)
-I also sometimes get paid from my online income via check, so i should be able to endorse checks and mail them to the bank
Also I guess I should ask how hard it is going to be to sign up at these banks. I still have my New Hampshire license and have yet to receive any mail at my new address.
