Not sure about "cabinet" : do you mean a desktop computer case, a computer desk, or an actual cabinet for storing things?

What size?

What products are you considering? Provide links if possible.

) "Best" is subjective. What do you like: colors, style, design, size, shape, etc.?

2) Value for money: you have a budget (3000INR) which is good. Still there may be trade offs involved if you are budgeted at the low end of the pricing range.

Read product reviews via professional reviewers and certified purchasers. Find out what they like and do not like about the cabinet.

However, the only way to know is to actually look at the cabinet(s) to see how well they are constructed, what materials are used, strength, durability, etc..

i meant a desktop computer case.
No color preference.. was thinking about an acrylic panel for better view of the internals.
Options that came across my mind :

I lean very much towards function over form.

For me, just ordinary and often recycled/salvaged desktop computer cases.

Will defer to others who wish to comment on the specifics (again subjective) with respect to "looks best" and "value for the money".

I agree that recycled / salvaged computer cases are for best value. But for a new case, what would you suggest for 3000INR ?
Leave the best looking part..but best value for money case !
Like bang for the buck.

Reviews should be helpful to you.

E.g.:

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-pc-cases,4183.html

https://www.techradar.com/news/computing-components/upgrades/best-pc-gaming-case-2011-8-reviewed-956650

Again "bang for the buck" - for me a case that supports different sized motherboards/configurations has more dollar for dollar value than a case that is not so flexible. However, those flexible cases, by necessity, must be larger and may not fit well into the destination workspace. Or some other location if a move has to be made.

Older cases tend to be more durable but also heavier. Also the older cases are/were built to tighter standards and QA was better. New cases often feel flimsy to me. (Unfortunately a characteristic of many products these days. That discussion belongs in another category....)

Decide what is most important to you and prioritize accordingly. You could well find an old case at a yard sale or second hand store - color likely to be black or beige. Pay a few dollars, spend a few more dollars on spray paint and end up with a very nice looking computer. Ask friends and family members - not at all uncommon that someone has an old, unused system tucked way.

Free goes a long ways towards "bang for the buck".....

Lots of case mods "how-to's" etc. online. "Best bang for the buck" could be a very satisfying DIY project at little cost overall

Still there could be other suggestions and ideas posted with respect to a specific case and cost. I have no problem with that.
