That's an extreme example for the case, but anyone who says you can build a gaming PC that will be able to run the newest games for the next 8-10 years for cheaper than $500 is completely full of it.


This is true, but for someone who likes to play a lot of games spending $1000-1500 on a PC will be cheaper in the long run if you're a smart shopper.

My Steam library's value is about $2000 this point(from current retail prices of games). I didn't spend more than a few hundred bucks on it.

Not to mention, next time you need to upgrade it will be a lot cheaper.


I always subtract the base cost of the PC anyways. Since only the video card is really for gaming, everything else was needed anyways since we all need a PC in this day and age.

So, a 600 dollar PC and a 600 dollar console, or a 600 dollar PC and a 400 dollar video card.

No the important question is "would you use this?".

If you are a PC gamer and you are not living on welfare then its going to be a huge hell no.
The size is small, it has 1 fan, it has a limited amount of sockets and it would require modification to get proper ventilation. No one would cram any decent GPU and CPU in a POS case like that.


If I had a micro-ATX motherboard, I see no reason to not use it.
...well, maybe I would hunt for a smaller case, still nothing that really prevents me from using it.
It's small because it's a Micro-ATX. They are built to be small and one fan is enough.
Limited sockets?
What do you have that requires more than 4 5.25" Drive Bays, 3.5" Drive Bays and 7 expansion slots?

Oh I love the excuse about how keyboard and mouse sucks.
They have other arguments, but that's the only one that can hold any water at all. And it's really just a preference and circumstance issue. Since M&Kb is better for some games, and gamepad is better for others. But they ignore that and just say PC gaming sucks because you have to use a M&Kb.

This, the way people react that PC is used only for gaming is mind boggling.

Well, since you need a crazy expensive OLED TV to get the most out of the PS4/X1, PC gaming is clearly the cheaper choice.

Look at that...
An empty case costs more than the entire PS4/XBO console! LOL!



"90 degree motherboard mounting"

Something about that just sounds downright dastardly.

Thats not the point. Just because its usable dosent mean mean its a good product.

That case is trash, end of discussion.
