If it's in your means, I'd recommend going with the 10 gal Blichmann. With a false bottom and hopblock, the system is unbeatable and you are unlikely to grow out if it anytime soon. With a cheap 5-7 gal basic pot for sparge water and a couple of food grade plastic buckets, you are set for all grain 5 gal batches. After a few years I got a 20 gal for 10 gal batches but I still mostly use the 10 gal. I like to brew and love variety, so I prefer 5 gal batches.

Here are a few shots of my Blichmann 10 and brewing evolution from stove-top extract to garage turkey fryer to RIMS:
