Copper fin/tube baseboard is not as expensive as many people think. Last year I think it was $10 per foot at my local supply house. It can be more or less depending on the brand and how many endcaps you need, etc. Speaking of supply house...most of them have a heating guy on staff that will be happy to size the baseboards for you. You need to know room dimensions, window/door sizes, etc. Slant Fin also had a neat program that allowed you to figure that out on your own. I have a copy of it somewhere.

If there isn't enough radiation, you will be cold...that holds true for baseboard, convectors, free standing radiators, etc.
