When building a new system I think one of the hardest things to decide on is your case. It is something you are going to have to look at every day and something you may want to show off at a LAN party. With that said many people do not have the money for a flashy over-the-top computer case. Many people would rather have a functional case than one that looks cool. The Rosewill R5 Mid Tower Case comes in at about $70 and features 3 included fans, fan controller, USB 3.0 support and removable air filters. Is the case for your next build? Read on and find out!
