Am getting a Shuttle AK32 Mobo and wondered if anyone could suggest a cheap case, preferably a tower.

Size is 305mm x 245mm and it is ATX

Have lookde on ebay and some people have said that the reason for selling is case is to small/big etc.

Does an ATX mobo not fit an atx case in ALL cases

The cheap JNC cases from Ebuyer ar every good for the price. Admittedly the metal is thin and the plastic a bit flimsy. You have to take care that you don't cut your hands on the few sharp edges inside (most edges are rolled for safety and rigidity), but the cases are about £15 each with power supply and you can't get much cheaper than that

Regarding the case size. An ATX motherboard won't fit a MicroATX (mATX case), these are usually the ones with only two 5 1/4 inch bays at the front. A case is too big when it won't fit under your desk ;-).

I have an old (was w98 set up) tower which i was wondering what to do with it.
I see a new one is circa £10 so now i know it is really worthless.
