I need new snowboard, boots, and bindings, but I'm not sure what to look for or how much I should be spending.

I bought my first snowboard / boots / bindings around 4 years ago and last season they finally died. I got the whole set for a little over $200 when I bought it. The bindings were strap in and I think the company that made the whole set was SnowJam.
I'd imagine the style of snowboarding you plan on doing has a lot to do with the kind of snowboard that you would want to get. That said, I'm (slowly) learning jumps but I have the most fun on glade style runs.
So what should I look for in brand, telltale signs of quality (or the lack thereof), and price? Are there some solid review sites out there that I can find more information from? Does anyone know of a good package (board / boots / binding) deal, or is better to build the set ala carte?
