Budget is a very loose term thrown out by companies to appeal to the mid to lower end of the consumer market. Coming in at $74.99 USD we would definitely consider this chassis budget. You get some great features here with a smaller hit to your wallet. You acquire a beautiful tempered glass viewing area with a ton of RGB options to create your own custom aesthetic experience. The addition of the PSU shroud and huge front radiator make this chassis very functional. One thing we would like to see is a deeper cable area to eliminate cable disorder. This is our first of three Cooler Master chassis and were happy to award the K500 TG a silver seal.
