We all ask that question of ourselves. I am not sure anyone can answer it for you. You have a saw, shop, floor space, anticipated projects, storage, snow blowers and lawn tools as well as other tooling to use that floor space.
Anyway, I can cut 36" to the right side of the blade and have one 12" extension to the left. Additionally I have 18" of outfeed that spans 44" from the left side of the saw. It takes up far too much room in my small one car garage DIY shop but, I like my saw setup and am willing to deal with the fact that too much floor space is committed to the saw.
Good luck with your saw setup.
