One thing I know is that both *seem* to run fine together according to a friend with both although there may be circumstances where a feature may not work but he has not found an issue yet and that both on the same partition.
There is also a lot of planning done for using dead hours for that side of things if you are only on one machine.
Compressor / QMaster?

Since you can no longer purchase additional licenses for FCP/FCS, if you did buy a second Mac tomorrow, you would have to buy Final Cut Pro X anyway.
people recommending switching from Final Cut Pro to Premiere Pro.

First major update to Final Cut Pro X is out!
Apple releases major update to Final Cut Pro X, release demo version
Apple on Tuesday released a major new version of Final Cut Pro X, the first update to the company’s professional video application since it was released in late June.
Final Cut Pro X 10.0.1 focuses on implementing the top user requested features into the application to help professionals get their work done more efficiently.
“We got a lot of feedback from our professional users,” Richard Townhill, Apple’s senior director applications marketing, told The Loop. “We listened to the pros and have taken their top feature requests and put them in this update.” (Source)
If you had a good enough spec machine and OS X Lion
OS X Lion Allows Running Multiple Copies on the Same Machine (Virtualization) - Mac Rumors
You could run virtual machines of OS X on OS X Lion - not sure if that would give you enough oommmppphh / power to do what you do in FCP or FC X ??
Apple recently changed its policy regarding virtualization of OS X non-server versions, so booting Lion in a VM is now legal and supported by both Parallels Desktop 7 and VMware Fusion 4. This is obviously of limited appeal to end users and meant to be something tech support types would want to use for sandboxing testing environments. Both VMware and Parallels have support for sharing, but no 3D acceleration for Lion VMs.I later realized the lack of 3D support means no acceleration for any GPU functions at all, video included. Trying to play back a video in QuickTime was fruitless since it had no hardware acceleration—it just stuttered. I get that Lion VMs aren't going to see the same level of support as Windows clients since the market is so small, but if it's ostensibly meant to be used as a testbed for OS X support, a lack of hardware-accelerated video is definitely setting the bar too low.
