Check your motherboard manual. If it doesn't, then for that price range the best are the led strip kits you can find off of Amazon. They aren't specifically designed for PCs, but they work just fine and start out at around $15 USD.

Think I have the cable mod set. Rgb I think cost a tad more but it’s only a 60m kit. Isn’t enough tonlibe my whole case. Should be close enough to that budget.

@GAMINGGUY check out the CableMod WideBeam Magnetic RGB LED kit.

Does it have a software that works with them, and can it sync with other brands, such as aura sync etc?

@GAMINGGUY this kit is a standalone RF receiver with controller included. Otherwise if you have a compatible header we do have various LEDs that are compatible with the different RGB headers. (3-pin 5v addressable LEDs, 4-pin 12v standard RGB LEDs, and 5-pin 12v hybrid RGB/W and RGB/UV LEDs)

Depends what kind of stuff you want. You want static lighting? Get a colored led strip for 2 bucks from any chinese webshop. Do you want a fading rgb led strip? Get the same for 3 bucks. Do you want rgb addressable stuff? You can get those for like 5 bucks.

 

If you want it to be controlled by your PC then you should look into NZXT Hue or Corsair Lighting Node or the other stuff I think Thermaltake does it now too, but those are 10x more costy. However it's what all the cool kids use, so if you wanna pimp with your PC you should look into that stuff. If you just want permanent rainbow that isnt controlled by your computer, get a cheap addressable rgb strip from a chinese webshop instead.

Cable mod is very nice but expensive. You can also go along with Corsair lighting nod. The leds are great and also have very good quality . There is a hub to connect them and ICUE  software to control them perfectly.

I Agree with Enochian and ramm

 

The corsair stuff works pretty good but is also a bit exy.. ... i'm keen to get my hands on some TT gear to test out.

 

It's still a WIP but this is a sample of the corsair lighting node with 2 of their LED strips... kit has 4 strips.
