The best cheap houses | October 2020

October update

Our buying guide has been enriched with a real best-buy: MetallicGear Neo Silent.

We have drawn up a guide to the best cheap houses on the market, which we will update from month to month according to promotions and new releases. Among our proposals, models with mini-ITX form factors are also included, ideal for those who want to build a compact PC. The products are listed in ascending price order, up to a maximum of only 50 euros.

The surprising aspect is that you won't have to give up on design: some models have nothing to envy to the best houses of well-known companies such as NZXT, Corsair or Thermaltake.

You may think that such cheap models are not suitable for a gaming PC, but they are not. Some of the proposed cases can mount up to a maximum of 7 120mm fans (even 140mm variants), as well as liquid coolers. Therefore, heat dissipation will not be a problem even for the most expensive configurations.

Space is not lacking either: most of the proposals can accommodate at least two 2.5 / 3.5-inch storage drives (and up to seven), as well as ATX, microATX, and mini-ITX motherboards. If you want to save money by investing in more performing hardware components, our proposals are perfect for you.
