I still have 3 enlight cases of that era in use, you can stack a huge
monitor on the desktop version without worrying about it caving in.

I have 2 full tower Inwin Q500 atx cases that cost a little under $80 that
are built like tanks with thick quality metal that fits together perfectly
and a smaller midtower for $50 or so same quality. I don't mind a few screws
to hold the side panels on. The cases under $30 are the crapiest I ever
seen and wouldn't use one.
