For the low MSRP of about US$50-$60, you will receive.
To start off, you will receive am installation manual, a pin assignment guide for the top multimedia ports (shown later), assorted screws and washers, four adhesive feet, extra case screws, a motherboard speaker and a set of keys to lock the side door.
Secondly, you will receive a power supply with this case. And no, it's not a crappy generic power supply either but a Sparkle 300 Watt unit which have been known in the community to be excellent. Some people think that a 350 watt is the lowest needed for an overclocking system. But if you have only one hard drive, one optical drive and a motherboard and components, 300 watts should be completely adequate.
Bringing up the rear is the actual case which I specifically picked because it is a little different than most cases on the market. Change is always good.
