Hi, Paxton. You might check out the thread that starts with "metal vs. wood studs" on 2/9. There are some other discussions on this subject if you care to search. Most of these are more related to do-it-yourself projects like framing a basement room rather than whole house construction, if that's what you are considering.

There are plusses and minuses on both sides and wood or metal will both work but you need to learn all the necessary techniques for working with metal if you choose to go this way. You might ask your building inspectors about local issues if you have to pull a permit. The studs are available at home centers.
