Obviously cheap isn't going be better, but for a person with a budget I want to know what a good cabinet amp is. I play metal and am planning on using the cabinet with the eleven rack. I really like Marshall amps. I saw the Marshall MG412 for a relatively good price. Is that any good?

You would need a power amp to use Eleven Rack with the cabinet. What do you need the cabinet for? Because if you intend to use it for rehearsals or live, it would be better to plug in the Eleven rack straight to the mixing console and use the built-in cab simulator. Buy some active studio monitors instead of cabinet.

Well I'm just planning ahead really. I am by no means in any rush to get it. I'm just considering using it for if I ever get into performing live and have it for practice as well.

Eleven rack + nice FRFR active monitors for home practicing should not be too expensive, and for live playing just get a suitable midi foot controller and you're ready to go.
