Which size/type Le Creuset to buy?

I have been wanting to buy a Le Creuset pot for some time now, and due to a generous holiday gift I can now afford it. The only thing is, I can't decide which pot would best serve my needs.

I intend to use it for the following: soups, braises, and risotto. I'd like it to be big, as I usually cook for 4-6 people.

I was leaning toward the round 7.25 quart dutch oven, but don't know if that's too big. I also was tempted by a great deal I saw on the 6.5 quart risotto pan- but wasn't sure how versatile that one would be, with the sloped sides.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
