if you have the room, and can afford them, I would have both. Each have their own advantages and disadvantages. That would give you more choices in what to use.
That's what I've done. I custom built a heavy duty workbench to mount my RAS and SCMS inline with a section of commercial rollers in between. I use the SCMS mostly, but I use the RAS for a lot of dado work and for wider boards. It's a 1950 Delta Red Star that I refurbished and it works like a champ.:thumbsup:

NetDoc,

I don't think you said what kind of saw you got. If it's a 10" Craftsman, depending on the model, it may be subject to a recall campaign. If so, Sears will send you a new table top and guard for free (or send you $100 to junk the saw).
What's nice about the saw not being covered it that you'll get $100 back for sending in just the motor assembly. You still have the remainder of the saw for parts or for mounting a router in.:thumbsup:
