Everything you find at the Oak Park web site will work together as a system. I do have a suggestion for you, when you are ready, buy the build your own table kit. This has the table top with the plate installed. There are also holes pre drilled to locate the various jigs. Plans are included for building the table to support the top. Quick easy and inexpensive. It doesn't get much better than that. As far as routers go, the beginning shows were sponsored by Hitachi, the later shows were sponsored by Porter Cable. This is the reason why you see those brands of routers on the show. As a staff member I have to be impartial as to which brand of router to suggest. Most are quality machines designed for specific jobs. If you are only going to use a router a couple times a year then a Skil or Ryobi will do just fine. The new Craftsman combo kit is another inexpensive choice. The ability to use 1/2" shank bits is the single most important feature for a new router. The only router I can not recommend is the Porter Cable 890 series which has been plagued with problems. You will find the details posted in another thread on this forum. I had my hands on one of the new improved versions, the 860 series. It looks better, but I would wait to buy one until after they have been in use a while. Let other people make the lemonaide first. You can read about the reviews of different routers on the forum. I will say that more staff members own Bosch than any other brand, including two who have their names in green.
