Im building a computer for my mother to run Photoshop etc. and i need to get a case around $100USD or less.

I dont want to get one of those ridiculous looking gaming cases i just want something that is durable well built and roomy.

it CANNOT have fan controls on the external because i dont want something to get bumped or changed by an inexperienced user.

I am considering just getting a 4u server case and upending it and installing a piece of angle aluminum on the rack mount flange. is this a bad idea?

i do not want any plastic facades, just plain metal.

thanks for your help and insight.

this are some im considering

I know your considering a server case but check this one out....

Corsair Obsidian 550D.

Plain black professional design, high quality build and backed by a company that actually gives a crap about its customers (great service). It comes in at $125, but it's well worth the extra bit in my opinion. For your money you get all metal design (except front panel), great fit and finish, a finished interior, and a case designed to be easily built in.

Thanks for the advice. it is certainly a sweet case. a little pricey though

what do you think about using a server case? drawbacks benefits etc.? ive never used a server case so i am wondering if it is a bad idea.
