Magnisium is hard, light and cheap... it can be cast.

Aluminum must be machined and is heavier.

Titanium is the best, lighter and stronger but is hard to machine and hugely expensive.

Titanium is heavier than both aluminum and magnesium. It is more commonly used as a lighter weight replacement for steel.
