Not like a Antec One. Top mount PSU which in some cases I like better, as less air intake noise and less dust collection and maintenance. Actually that first one appear nicer on the outside than the Antec, but the interior is like so low-end 2004 looking (at least in the drive cage area), while face it doesn't appear to be for long graphics card. Although I'm more than willing to look past all that if for a low cost entry gaming build as long as the price is like $30. Would need to see more, in a review.

I was going to say that those look really flimsy and cheap-looking, but after reading about the price...well, you get what you pay for...

With a NZXT Source 210 being just $36 ... I wouldn't touch this pos lol.
Granted it is 28% more .... but powder coating and tool-less is worth it.
That $8 just isn't worth all the nicks n scraps from too cheap a case.
