Pneumatic Nailer Questions

Feeling ambitious and I plan on building an entertainment armoire to house a 32 in TV. Dimensions will be roughly 72x35x24, with raised panel doors and trim molding around the top. I'm window shopping for a pneumatic nailer and would like some advise on what types to consider. I'd like to purchase an all around gun that's versatile for this job and other furniture projects down the road for roughly $300 (total including compressor). Here are my key questions:
Quality name brands of nailers?
Brad nailer vs. finishing nailer?
Angled vs. straight nailers?
Compressor vs. cordless?
Best type of nails to use for building sm, med, and lg furniture?

Here's a deal on Amazon.com for both types of guns. Would that solve all my problems or would it be overkill to have both?
Thanks,

not to be rude but a decent compresser is 250.00 to three hundred and the nailer I use will only shoot a brad 1 1/4 long and it was 90.00 I would go electric if your nail gun was the only Pneumatic tool in the shop. what I mean is, say you buy a small CFM compressor and later you want a sander or impact gun or what ever, your compressor needs to be a good one (high CFM)or you have wasted good money on a limited tool. just my thoughts and don't really mean anything.

You really need to disguide your amazon affiliate link a little better next time. Or at least offer it response to a legitimate question :(

Not related to your question:
I just finished an entertainment armoire to house a 32" TV. Dimensions are 72x60x24. Raised panel/hidden doors. Crown molding at the top and trim molding at the floor. I only used my air nailer to drive 10 nails - to fasten the crown and trim molding (armoire sits in an alcove next to the fireplace - no sides or back to trim out). Everything else is glued and clamped. I did build it in two sections, with the top and bottom fastened together with a hidden, flat panel connector bolt-type thing.
Sounds like SWMBO justification to buy a compressor and nailer. Go for it!
I have a Porter Cable pneumatic finish nailer. Shoots 15 gauge 1" to 2.5" long. Very happy with it.
