Default Expensive Cases Suck

Is it possible to get a good case with a good 400W power supply and a couple of case fans for $60 or less? I've been looking around at various websites, and everything seems too expensive.

none of them have good 400w psu's, its an impossible find. The cheap ones there are horrible (I've used a cheap one and its horrible)

I looked at newegg, but many of the reviews on the various cases said the power supplies were shoddy, or there wasn't enough ventilation. All I'm planning on doing with my computer is web browsing and very occasional gaming. How many fans should I need?

2, one for intake and one for exhaust (not including the psu, fans on the side of the case dont count either), the fans should push about 50cfm each.

So how much would a decent case cost, with a good power supply and enough fans?

That is an expensive, good one. I have one similar to it and they are great. However if you are on a budget and want a good one; http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...156-137&depa=0

people seem to like Enermax power supplies for their quality, this case has a 400W power supply, and it's from Enermax
