If you opt to build your own vs. buying a prebuilt desktop PC, be sure to factor the computer case into your decision. PC cases are enclosures made of plastic, glass, or steel that house the inner workings of your computer tower to keep them free of dust, grime and unexpected spills. Towers designed to be a gaming desktop promote better airflow between the hardware, and some models already include one or more cooling fans, as a lot of heat is generated by your device, especially if you go for top-shelf hard drives or processors to increase speed or visual performance. You can also choose between cases that completely hide away the computer components inside them, or show off your gear like a piece of technical art on your desk.
Choosing the best PC case for your device.
When you begin your search for a computer case, it helps to narrow down your options. For example, depending on the physical size and configuration of the motherboard and tower, there are ATX cases that match, including micro ATX, mini-ITX and EATX. You’ll also choose between a mid-tower case, full tower PC case, or a mini — whichever corresponds to your intended components. And because sometimes it’s not only about function, you can get a black or white PC case or one that glows with RGB lighting. Thanks to the wide variety of traditional and gaming PC cases available at Best Buy, you can find the best PC case for your goals and your taste.
