I've generally used cheaper cases for all my PC builds but for the most recent, spent a few more pounds - my son wanted a case with side window & lights on the front. As a consequence we bought a better quality case.
Much easier to work with - no sharp edges, easier installation of HDD, quieter - it can have its benefits.
Difference in cost was typically £20 - £25 for a cheap case vs £40 - £50 for the more expensive one. Don't know about spending more though!
