Value cases have certainly changed in recent years.  What once was a cream coloured case with 2 5.25″ bays and an 80mm exhaust fan has changed to cases like the  ~$50 Lancool DragonLord PC-K56.  Tool less design, 120mm exhaust and intake fans, 5 5.25″ bays, 8 vented expansion slots in the back and even rubber grommets for watercooling.  Check out this value priced case at Pro-Clockers.

“Recently Lancool has released a new series of cases called Dragonlord. The Dragonlord series consist of four models: K62, K60, K58 and the lower model K56. Each of the cases has a few more options than the lower models but all generally share similar front facials which is a predominantly mesh. The model we will be concentrating on will be the K56. The K56 offers a lot of tool-less options that will put the building time at a minimum.”
