Sometimes size doesn't matter, but in this case you'd be better off to go with 10" blade.

I agree with the Delta for the money. Craftsman before The harbor freight. Harbor freight only as a last resort. There are many better than all three of those, but for the money, The Delta is the best bet. I've had one that just won't die. I keep it for metal cutting which is pretty hard on a saw, but it keeps on going no matter what I throw at it.

Keep in mind Colton, that almost anything else that you buy is going to be better than Harbor Freight.
