Big Blue Q: Aspire ATXA9NW vs. ATXA8NW - necessary?

i'm trying to put the big blue system together and there's a $60 difference between the ATXA9NW case and the ATXA8NW case, but the only differences are:

-450W vs. 500w power supply (2 peripheral power supplies)
-steel vs aluminum case
-one rear fan
-10lbs' of weight

if i'm not planning on overclocking, so am i going to run into any problems going with the cheaper option? my main worry is the power supply, but will i be overheating w/o aluminum?

thanks.

well i went with the bigger one and i'm glad i did -- all that power and i still needed to put a few y-splitters in there. my one complaint about the case is that the front firewire/sub access panel is a little flimsy -- when i put a cable in, the whole thing moves a bit. but otherwise it's great and when i emailed support they actually gave me a meaningful reply!
