Cant speak for your part of the world, but in Australia, a decent rack
case costs a lot more than a similar tower style case. There are however
a few no frills cases around which are much cheaper. Take a look at the
SVEC cases if someone nearby to you stocks them. Typically I have found
that the 4RU cases are the most cost effective, not to mention the
simplist to build as you dont need to worry about half height cards,
risers etc.
