Radial Arm Saw or Table Saw.....Which is the best choice?
A table saw and a compound miter saw together can do much of the same work as a radial arm saw but with greater accurately. (There are a few exceptions such as cross cut dadoes in long board lengths in which case a radial arm saw is better equipped.)

So my vote: A quality table saw (for precision ripping, plywood, "tricks", repeat cuts, and occasional crosscutting), and a miter saw, as Glenn suggests.
