I was looking to build a new computer with a ATX mid tower case. But i am not sure what to get. They all seem fairly similar. Why would i pay £50 not £15?

convenience features and build quality. More expensive ones will have more pre installed fans, could have tool less designs for the HDD and optical drives, good cable management, etc. With anything, you usually get what you pay for.

Build quality's going to be a big factor in this. For example, a £15 case might come with fans and everything and seem like an amazing deal. However, it will not be of equal construction to a £50 case that will, in many situations, last longer. Also, any bundled fans with a cheap case will probably be loud and/or inefficient.

It's worth the seemingly excessive outlay at the start because a more pricey case will last longer and be easier to build in (it will have better cable routing and hard drive installation, for example).

Ok thanks, could you advice some good ones at different budgets please? Cheap mid range and expensive. I am a new builder and have a motherboard, with ATX form. Thanks

NZXT source 210, corsair 200R are good cheap ones.

A lot of this will be down to personal preference, but the Corsair 200R would be a good one to look at.
