Do you want a flashy case? a mid tower or a full tower

I want something that will keep the stuff cool. The smaller the better - just to fit everything. The design is not important as the tower will be hidden.

2 reviews of the best cases under 50$ (or around that)

I would recommend the Antec Three Hundred That seems to be the best case for a budget and I heard its pretty decent to build in the only thing that you might want to get is some extra (cheep) case fans to keep it cool.

Good luck!

i really cannot recommend the Antec 300. its a slightly outdated case with no cable management options(which why v2 exists, even still its a bit pricey for what you are getting)


doing a very quick run through of cases, teh case you picked is a usable choice, others on amazon.uk would include some of Aerocool's models as well as the bitfenix shinobi.

I heard great things about the HAF 912 and NZXT M59/Gamma if you are going for a budget oriented case.
