I use a H.F. metal chop saw (sale price = $49) for right angle cuts.  It
works fine.  I'd save my money for a plasma cutter for the fancy stuff,
unless you have other uses for the band saw.

I have one like that and have used it to cut a rather complicated repair 
  plate from 1/2" steel. No curves but the 8" X 3" part with a couple 
offsets came out fine.  I just used a grinder for the finish curves.  No 
problem with the saw.  Just don't expect too much from it.  Thin metal 
will encourage the blade to jump off the wheels.
