When building your own custom PC, one of the first things you'll want to pick out is a PC Case. Depending on what case you choose, you can then start to pick the right components that will actually fit into it. It's no use choosing the best and most expensive GPU you can get your hands on if it means that it won't fit in your case or get proper cooling.

While there are some very expensive and impressive PC cases on the market, you don't always have to spend a ton of money to get a good PC case. Also, depending on what PC you're building, you may want to opt for something simple for your needs, rather than choosing something that is too big or complicated for your PC build.

So whether you're looking to build a new gaming rig, a small media center PC, or just a PC to handle all your office work at home, we've combed through to find some great PC cases that all cost less than AED 500.
