After spending $30~60 on an APU, and as low as $30 on a motherboard, you are probably looking for an ultra low-cost computer case / PSU to go with a new budget AMD AM1 build, right? If so, the Rosewill RS-MI-01 is a very cheap mini-ITX enclosure that also includes a 250 Watt power supply, but its $45 price tag may raise concerns over quality.

The Rosewill RS-MI-01 is a mini-ITX chassis with one 5.25 inch and two 3.5 drive bays, has a built-in 250 Watt ATX PSU, and is otherwise a normal run-of-the-mill chassis.
