I'm in a similar boat so I've been reading up on this.

Reasons to have a glass: it looks cool, you can see if your internal case is dirty, and verify the fans are running.

Reasons to have all metal: It's cheaper, quieter when the metal case has deadening foam material installed, and some people believe it reduces radiation rfi/emf exposure.

I'm leaning toward the solid metal panel, but my son just bought a new desktop system that has the tempered glass and it does look nice.

The motherboard I bought is circuit-board green and I am also going to use a Noctua CPU cooler which is a kind of ugly beige color. I probably need to hide everything from view.
