If you plan to weld a lot of aluminum, an inverter TIG is the only way to go. You can adjust waveform, wave balance, frequency and a few other options. it may sound complicated at first, but just get some scrap and run a few beads as you play with the settings, it becomes pretty obvious. With adjustable wave balance you can weld thicker material with less amps.

This is from a guy who started with a Miller 180SD (cheap transformer rig) and went to a Miller 200DX, and what a night and day difference! I can help you with initial setup if you need it.
