What is the difference, besides speakers, in amp cabs? To me, it seems like I could buy a really nice head and buy a decent cab to go with it and still sound good.

Build quality. Some cabs are built more solidly than others.

Never cheap out on an amp.

For example buying a cab designed for a SS amp head will make a tube head sound crap.

Also 212 cabs are fine in any situation.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

This, you always want the nicest amp you can possibly afford. Otherwise any guitar you have isn't gonna be used to its full potential. Also, some cabs are bigger and handle more bass, some project better, the type of wood used has a huge effect, if it's tuned or not, and portability is always a huge factor to consider when buying a cab.
