Looking for a very Cheap case.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I stated building a computer for my father. His Old AMD dual core is beginning to take it's toll. I got him an i5 and a motherboard. A GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 (rev. 1.0) to be exact. For 30 bucks. (Decent deal)

Now I ran into a VERY tight budget for a case. I have around 50 bucks. I wanted to know if you guys could recommend something. New or Used. The sleeker the case, the better. Windows is optional. Black interior is a plus.

I found 1 Antec on Ebay for 70 bucks. And thought maybe you guys know of better deals.


Thanks!

Well now, I am seriously considering the Coolermaster case or the NZXT 210. Looking more at the Coolermaster.

Looks like a very tight fit with my Motherboard.

As long as the board is still certified M-ATX (which it is) It should fit.
But also,I feel like the features and quality you get with the 210/220(cable management, 2x240mm rad support, and the clean look) way justifies the price difference between them and the N200. Keep in mind, if it matters to you or your Father, the N200 has USB 3.0.
