I don't think you'll be able to cut the 12-inch blanks with a 9" or 10" saw. It seems that usually the maximum width of cut on a 9" saw is somewhere around 9-1/8" and about 9-5/8" for a 10" saw, but if you rough cut the board width on the table saw, you'll at least be able to trim down the boards on those small band saws.
Other than that limitation, I think if you're going to buy new, the Rikon 10" or Craftsman clone would probably be a good buy. Scheppach also has a 10" for a little less money that looks almost identical to the Rikon except it had a standard miter slot in the table instead of a T-slot like the Rikon.
