    You probably would be alright with a 10" sliding compound miter saw. Check to see what width capacity it will cut and make sure it is going to cut the widest board you plan to use. Most new saws come with lasers, thats a good thing. Don't go for the cheapest one, get one just below the professional grade and it will outlive you. You can look at Sears #21201 compound miter, I just got it (still in box). It seems to have all the features I will ever need. There are many other good saws on the market also. Just start shopping and comparing features and take the one that does everything you want it to do. Good Luck!
