Although there's plenty of high end cases on the market, and those are usually the cases that computer enthusiasts gravitate towards, it's actually the entry level case segment that sometimes gets me the most excited. Over the last few years I've noticed a big shift in the quality of budget priced computer cases (think cases that sit around the $40 price point). We used to associate these cases with cheap looking and feeling designs, void of many features and built with flimsy side panels around a fairly flimsy chassis. However, a lot of well known computer case manufacturers have been starting to release some impressive entry level cases in this price segment that go against what we've come to expect from a "cheap" case. Over the last year I've had a fair number of these cases pass through my hands and the latest, the SilverStone PS08, is here with me today.
The PS08 will only cost you $35 CDN, which gives even the cheapest store brand cases a good run for their money. For under $40 you're getting a case who's design might fool you into thinking it's a more expensive SilverStone case with a roomy inside (big enough for a dual GPU system) and even USB 3.0 front I/O ports.
