I am trying to finish a build with a cheap price. Here are my current specs.

GT 730 (Upgrading to GTX 1050ti)
Intel i3 8100 3.6ghz
GIGABYTE H310M A
8gb ddr4
SEASONIC SS-350ET ACTIVE PFC

I need help looking for a decent pc case with glass side panel. I would like it to look appealing but with a cheap price, no more than $60. I also am not sure if I need a new power supply and if so, i need a budget power supply that will get the job done. I appreciate any and all help. I am also looking for parts specifically from amazon.

The SeaSonic unit could actually do it - although if you want to go with a side panel window etc, you might want something that looks a little better?

Do you actually want "glass" ie tempered glass? Or just a see-through side panel window?

Right now the 275R with TG is $45 after rebate and includes a bonus fan.

But it's $65 initially.

The Versa H18 TG is $50.

If you just want a window, the Spec-05 is $30 after rebate

or the Q300L is $40.

It doesn't matter if it is tempered or not, I would just like to be able to see inside. I appreciate the help!
