I am currently only lvl 36 but i was thinking toward more end game gear. I have read in inferno that survivability is your best bet. So i guess i look for gear with armor = resist > strength = vit?

correct. You will want lots of resist and lots of vit, also need str but that is not as important. Don't worry about your DPS. Having a really high dps is pointless if you cannot stay alive to use it all. SHoot for over 300 resist all but aim more for 400+ and your life will be a lot easier. :)

I have no clue what you will want. I'm guessing in reality you will want dual 1h's, a 1h + shield and a good 2h for all situations and builds.

The best gear for barb is vit, str and all resist... item stats are randomly generated so just search for those on the auction house.

That's written so carefully, there's no doubt in my mind that the "appropriate amount of loot" (in their minds) is smaller than what was dropping.... haven't tried a purple today to see if maybe that's what they're talking about, but if they increased the drops I'm sure they'd be trumpetting it to the world to make folks happy......

Almost 200 hours played with a Barb and I've yet to get "that" good weapon drop. At least I don't get 2-3 shot killed by zombies now at 600+ resist all. Elites are another story altogether as certain types are just crazy hard with a barb.
