    It seems like every month or so I acquire someone's older PC (that or I gain enough parts to make a mostly-complete system), and most of the time it's still a decent system... except for the case, which almost always looks like it's been through hell and back. I'll replace the case before selling it for a profit. So far my go-to case for this has been the MSI S-6811. It's under $40, the construction is actually passable, and it looks decent.

    I know it's not exactly a [H]ard topic, but out of curiosity, are there any other usable sub-$40 cases out there that I'm not aware of? My only other experience has been with the Linkworld LC727-02, and it was... it... it just... it was so horrible...

    NZXT Source 210 and Source 210 Elite are my go-to budget cases.

    I like the Antec 300's when on sale. They can be found for $35-40 on random rebates.

    I think Amazon has the Source 210 on sale right now. There's some other good budget cases out there. Lian Li has a few really good budget cases too that I like as well as Fractal.

    The one that comes with 4 fans is a good deal when it's on sale.

    I personally like the style and cable management features of the Corsair 200R.
