Anyone who's had a few PCs will tell you that you can make yours look like anything, if you've got the right case. While some cases are a bit too ostentatious and customized, there are quite a few that would look stellar on anyone's desk. Here are the ones that we liked that will fit any budget.

1. Thermaltake Level 10 One of the best-looking PC computer cases out there is the Level 10. The only issue we have with it is the price. The lowest we've found for this extraordinary case is $652. A new lower-priced model was released, the Level 10 GT, and that will set you back $280.

2. Recompute's Sustainable Carboard Case Recompute creates these cardboard computer cases, which will work for anyone who enjoys green design. The case costs $200 with a power supply.

3. Lian Li PC-V1020 Lian Li is well known for their aluminum cases. They stand the test of time and their most recent model is the PC-V1020. Expect to pay about $300 for a latest model, but you can find other models that look similar starting out at $150.

4. Cooler Master HAF 932 At $140, this case is pretty affordable and has all of the features necessary for most users. We like how easily you can access some of the front-side ports.

5. Antec LanBoy Air This case is a modular and allows you to extensively customize it to fit your needs. It's also open and airy, which will look good since it's got integrated lighting. It's available in yellow, blue, and red for $170.
