its probably one of the best cases for under 40 bucks. if you want looks ya go for the spike, but like you said its probably a little cheaply made. i cant really speak for cougar but i know silverstone has top quality.

Built a small gaming pc with this case for a friend not too long ago.

Front panel comes with a dust filter side panel fans do not, and since there's no fans on the top or bottom you'll probably want some higher cfm intake fans on the side if you're expecting to be outputting a lot of heat. You're likely going to need to provide a few dust filters and fans yourself so include the costs of them in the case. If you add an Led fan up front it looks really good. Also there's no CPU cutout bracket which might be an issue if you're going to be switching out the cooler after you've put the motherboard in. Also it has a top mounted PSU which I'm not a fan of...

Despite that it's a brilliant case, definitely doesn't feel cheap and can look really cool with that LED fan upfront.
