Hello Everyone,

I'm building a new gaming pc and I need help finding a slim computer case. I'm not going extremely skinny, but I am having trouble finding a case that meets my needs. Basically, my desk only allows less than 8 in (21cm) width for a computer tower and almost every mid-size gaming computer is just above that range. My desk has plenty of room for the other dimensions though. Also, my budget for the case is around $100.

Thank you for any recommendations!

Dunno if you've looked already, but take a peek at NZXT's Vulcan case. That's what I use. It's not the smallest, but if you're planning on building a gaming computer, I'd use this one.

The Rosewill Challenger is 7.48" wide as well as the NZXT GAMMA. Both are relatively cheap cases but a great bang for you buck.
