PC cases are something that can make your build stand out from the several out there. They add the finishing touch to your build. Now what case you choose depends on the type of case you want. Maybe you want something minimal or maybe you want a pc case with aggressive gaming looks. Regardless, we have gathered here the best gaming cases you can get under Rs 10,000. So let’s begin!
This budget-friendly case will for sure attract some eyes with its aggressive front design. The front is made out of plastic and is separated by the layered mesh design. The metal mesh will make sure lots of air flows through your case but the mesh isn’t removable. This makes it hard to clean and you will need a can of compressed air to get the job done. The Corsair’s SPEC-04 is also a mid-tower and will be able to support ATX form components.
The front of the case has a huge strip of RGB lightning but it comes with no RGB controller. The lighting can be changed through the button on the top though. The button can be used to switch between the 13 different RGB modes. 7 of these RGB modes are static lightning. The side of the case has a glass side panel and the front is made from a fake carbon-fiber material.
The case offers great aesthetics but the cable management is poor as there is very little space for cable management. Moreover, the case is also made out of quite thin aluminium which decreases durability.
This is a gaming pc case which is both beautiful and functional. The front panel shows an angled cutout design which provides ventilation to the fan. The cutout also adds gaming aesthetics to the case. The top of the case has two USB Type-A ports, one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0. The illuminated Cooler Master logo also looks great and gives a satisfying feeling when you turn on your PC.
On the side of the case, you will find tempered acrylic instead of tempered glass just to keep the case under an affordable price tag. You can add up to 5 HDDs to the pc case and an extra 2.5/3.5-inch drive at the bottom of the gaming case. The case comes with no power supply shroud, however, the cable management offered by the case is amazing.
This case makes it look as if you are staring deep into endless space, however, that’s the only selling point of the case. The side panel of the case is acrylic plastic instead of tempered glass. This was probably done to keep the costs down but also makes the case incredibly easy to carry around. Surprisingly, the case comes with no exhaust fan and the place where the exhaust fan is installed supports only 80mm fans instead of 120mm.
As with other budget cases that offer a lot of features in a small price tag, the cable management is poor. It takes a lot of time to build the case as there is simply not enough openings to drive the cable from. The case also gets pretty hot so it’s not recommended for high-end systems although it’s still great for low-end systems as it has an amazing mirror effect on the front panel and comes under an affordable price tag.
Cooler Master MASTERBOX MB501L sports a racing car sort of theme which isn’t very appealing in terms of aesthetics but the pc case looks and feels premium. There is a red coloured trim on the sides of the case which although looks nice but doesn’t provide much when it comes to airflow. Since there is no mesh on the front to provide airflow and no additional fans beside the exhaust fan, the case can get pretty hot.
The case offers pretty good cable management and there is also a PSU shroud. However, some variants of the case don’t come with the PSU shroud so be sure to check before making a purchase. You will also need to buy additional fans since the case also comes with one.

We have kept this article lockdown friendly is so that you can get a good gaming case despite the shortage in the market. The downside is that you may be missing on some pretty good options that are unavailable at the moment. There’s also a budget build under RS. 15,000 if you are interested.
