Most of us that are reading reviews are trying to find out what is the best of the best, or at least the best for each of us, regardless of the type of product.  Often these end up becoming items on our wish lists to dream for the day when we can afford them.  But what about something we can use right now?  Many of us want to find out the best we can get for our money.  What has the best performance or features to suit a current budget? 

In these tough economic times, spending even $100 on a new computer case may be out of the question for many of us.  So, the question then becomes:  What are we to do?  Do we buy that $5 beige box that is not going to help keep our components cool, and will probably cut our hands while trying to install our hardware?  Or, do we end up having to lower the quality of the processor or graphics card so that we can afford a bigger, roomier, and cooler enclosure?  That just leaves us with the middle ground, somewhere between a high-end enthusiast chassis and the fugly beige box. 

Seeing this need unfulfilled as of yet, in steps NZXT’s newest offering, the Beta.  Priced very low into the sub $100 category, they are hoping to include enough features found in some of their more expensive cases, into a new design that most anyone can afford.  But, how well have they done?  How good can a case that costs less than most hard drives these days really be?  These are the questions that we are looking to discover today.

Thanks go to our friends at NZXT for supplying the review sample.
