    I'm looking for a case to replace my current Gateway mini tower, I want a very cheap mid-tower case that fits both m-atx and atx, with audio jacks in the front, 1 or 2 USB jacks if possible. 7 expansion slots, and room for 2 HDDs and 2 optical drives in case of future upgrades. There are plenty on the Egg, but which ones are good? (Looking to spend around $50 or less, less is better.)

    The current case I have looks somewhat like this:

    +1 on that 330. It's actually not a bad case for being cheap.

    nice inside looks to be the best for functionality
    has a weird looking mesh bit with blue leds on front but its nice shape for the rest of the front if you ignore that blue bits

    did actuall look at rosewill other brands but i didnt like them they either looked horrible outside and where good inside or where either nice looking cases but TOO basic
    i went for a selection of modern sleek looking cases with straight edges and flat surfaces and no little cheap bits on them apart from one

    2 really cheap cases
