Search for Rippetoe's guide to rep ranges and strength, it is an extremely helpful graphic for our argument here. The largest effect on both strength and power occurs at lower rep ranges, below 8, generally somewhere between 3 and 6. What does this mean? No more drop sets, no more burn out sets until infinity, more powerlifting style training.
If you are buying metal benches, check welds and the rust treatment. Metal benches should have no swarfs as they can tear your clothes and even cut someone.
Foam rolling your upper body also has benefits. Loosening up your lower back can help mediate the strain and stress that is put on it when arching it during the bench press, and foam rolling your lats can help you form a tighter base from which to push. Foam rolling you biceps and front delt will also aid in loosening up your shoulder, and finally rolling around on your chest will relieve any nagging tension or strain that has built up there. Pretty much, roll, roll a lot, and do it before you lift, it helps.
