So to recap, I can use steel boxes, so that its steel-on-steel, and as long as I ground each steel box, and claps each cable in, and use the grommets, I should be good? Right?
When wiring the devices, you will ground the box to the receptacle. A grounding jumper will be required if you choose metal.

Less expensive than the ones you provided the link for? Yes. I know plastic is cheaper. But are the ones you show less money?????? And are they readily available to the DIY'er?
If it were wood studs, metal would have never been brought up.
Don't you read the complete thread before you start correcting everyone?
My point is this.
If you use metal studs, run conduit and mount 1900 boxes and mud rings.
If you use wood studs, run NM and use plastic.
Now, what is wrong with that thinking.
Back when I was an apprentice, plastic boxes and NM wire were not even allowed in my jurisdiction.
Metal studs, metal boxes. My suggestion and nothing more.
