Best Gaming PC Cases in 2021 That Will Not Empty Your Wallet

by Hafsa Asim

Your gaming PC case is what will house the components of your computer and will provide them safety; it is, in all essence, the basic building block of your computer system. You might want to buy the case and build the PC from scratch or just buy one ready. In any case, there are certain things you need to keep in mind before buying a gaming PC case.

To begin with, check the Case Compatibility of your gaming PC case, that is, its form factor and clearance. The form factor includes case sizes and common motherboard form-factors. Essentially, there are only 4 case sizes, namely; Full Tower (Large), Mid Tower (Medium), Micro-ATX (Small), and Mini-ITX (Smaller).
The most common motherboard form-factors; Extended ATX, Standard ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX.

Of course, the bigger the case the better it will be able to hold variable motherboard form factors. If you have a large or a medium gaming PC case then you will be able to fit all 4 types of motherboards in it, it really is an issue of compatibility.

When we talk about Clearance & Other Compatibility Issues these 3 components come to mind;
Graphics card length- long graphic cards can be a problem in medium and small cases, but as tech is advancing, the length of the cards is decreasing and cases are being built to accommodate longer GPUs. Therefore, you are good to go as long as your card space exceeds your card length.

Air CPU cooler height- again, just check the cooler height against your case’s spec, and if cooler space is larger than the height then you are good to go.

Liquid cooling radiator size- check your case’s spec sheet to ensure that the radiator that comes with your liquid cooler will fit inside of your case.

Moving on, we have the gaming PC case build quality. It goes without saying that case build should be of high quality, but then the issue of expense arises. We have assembled high-quality gaming PC cases from recognizable and respected brands that despite low prices offer good quality.

Lastly, look out for case aesthetics. Good gaming PC case aesthetics includes see-through side panels, the presence of PSU shrouds to block out noises, and good RGB lighting.
