Antec announced the Antec One enclosure, a gaming case designed to offer solid features and performance for those on a budget--even a small budget, as the street price looks to be around $60. (Two special versions of the case, the One S and One S3 are forthcoming and will cost a bit less.)

For cooling, the One can accommodate a total of 5 fans (2 are included) and features a perforated mesh design to optimize front-to-back airflow. It also supports water coolers.

The case features three 5.25-inch drive bays, two dedicated 2.5-inch drive bays, and five 3.5-inch drive bays; seven expansion slots; support for ATX, microATX, and Mini-ITX motherboards; and a pair of USB 3.0 ports and audio in/out on the front I/O panel.
