Do you need a tower for under 100 USD since you ask?

Might be a good and valid reason why the prices are in the midrange for these types of case. Just saying.

Hi, I don't need one. Just wanted to record the price somewhere.

Looking back, the Antec Solo (first one) for $50 was a steal.

Antec P280 ATX Mid Tower Computer Case $80 after $20 rebate + Free Shipping - 06/18/12

This forum needs a wiki where we could all contribute and keep these types of lists up to date. They might not be the official SPCR recommended cases/fans/etc, but a wiki would draw upon a much broader base of experience and knowledge.
