Your Computer Case serves three basic purposes:

How to choose the best cabinet for Your gaming PC?
You may consider these 2 Major points before buying a PC Cabinet.
- What is your budget for the PC cabinet? When building a gaming PC some Gamers tend to buy the cheapest cabinet and PSU – This is a bad choice, your graphics card, CPU, and motherboard require adequate cooling and power supply. Factor in the cost of PSU and Cabinet in the Rig, don’t try to fit in the cheapest.
- How much space do you require in the cabinet? Do you need more than 1 GPU, Need 2-3 HDD and SSD in PC? Think about it and then decide.
- The number of USB ports, general design, ability to add more cooling fans is some more things I would look at before buying a new cabinet.
Quick Tip – Check for the graphics card length whether it will fit in the small cabinet you are buying. Some cards like Nvidia RTX 3080 or AMD 6800XT are long, check the cabinet specs if it has enough space to house it. Space, where you are going to keep the cabinet, is sufficient to house it with ease.
Also, some of the processor coolers are too big in size and may not fit the cabinet check for the processor cooler height before buying the cabinet.
We are done with the basics and requirements for choosing a cool cabinet for your gaming rig. Let’s check out some of the best value for money cabinets. Let’s begin with the low price PC cabinet which is ideal for gamers building a RIG with a Budget of Rs. 20,000 to 50,000.
