Start with a good tablesaw. At least you could work with dimensional lumber. Add a planer and jointer later (in that order). A planer is more versatile because you can now work with different stock thickness, and a planer sled can can even out warped boards if needed. You can use a straight line / taper jig at the tablesaw to joint edges.

You really need all three tools to mill any quantity of rough lumber.
