Cheap gaming case? See the best options!

It is common to plan a gamer setup starting with the combination of processor and video card, leaving other elements for the end. Although this is not necessarily a mistake, choosing a case with a very committed budget can pose several problems, especially for those who still do not have much experience in building computers.

With that in mind, the Voxel prepared a selection of cheaper cases, but that still offer ease of assembly, accommodation of all parts without compromising cooling solutions and, of course, RGB lighting. An important detail is that, as they are cheaper models, most cases on this list only have a basic I/O interface following the standard: 3.5 mm headphone and microphone jacks, two USB 2.0 is USB 3.0.
