New house new softener? new RO?

I am having a house build in Alamogordo NM so I can't test the water yet but here is the city report
www.eebmike.com/water.rtf
2 people in house maybe 3 later. 2 Baths no heavy demands.

I am thinking about getting this softener http://www.amazon.com/Fleck-5600SXT-softener-digitial-metered/dp/B004GEFKN8/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1413237125&sr=1-1&keywords=water+softners+for+home#productDetails
and this RO system
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003XELTTG/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B003XELTTG&linkCode=as2&tag=softwaterfiltration-20

.. If I am being stupid with these choices would someone let me know?

I picked this softener because it has 1.5 SF Resin and all the ones I found in Home depot and lowes were smaller.

RO has good reviews.

I really would like to have no softener but can't find any alternatives, There are not whole house filters that will remove the Magnesium and Calcium?

Any other way around the water wasting softener and RO?

Thanks
Mike
