Budget Case

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am currently looking to overhaul my current 4 year old computer, and would like some recommendations for a sub-$70 budget computer case so I can start my build. I would like a mid tower case with simple, clean (or at least not overly flashy) aesthetics that can fit my full size GTX 1060 and an ATX motherboard. I also have no plans to do any watercooling, other than possibly adding an AIO some time in the future. Relatively easy cable management is also a must. I was looking at something like an S340, but I am completely unfamiliar with any other budget cases that have come out on the last few years to compete with it. Any advice is appreciated.

 

I am also currently using a GT1 case by InWin, and I am not really the biggest fan of it in all honesty, so let's avoid that particular case.

The NZXT s340 is pretty good, but it scratches easily. I would go for an s340 Elite, it has full AIO support, tempered glass, and is only a bit more expensive.

 

Also look into Phanteks cases. Most are above your budget, but I believe there are some you can go for

I just ordered  a Raidmax Sigma in white for $59.99 from Newegg  and getting a $20 rebate also.It has a tempered glass panel on the side.It is a very versatile case for air or water cooling,the black version is still 79.99.I was looking at the NZXT and the Phantek with the tempered glass side panel but the Raidmax was a way better deal.It also has a lot of tie down points on the back for cable management.Here is a vid.

Phanteks Eclipse P400 is a nice budget case;)
