Parts of the System Case
A system case should normally come with a number of physical components. This will of course vary widely from system to system, depending to some extent on the form factor and overall design of the case. If you buy a case by itself for use in building your own machine, you should be able to check for all of these items. If you bought a pre-built system, many of these components were probably already put into the case when it was assembled, with left over materials kept by the company that made it.
Note: This information is based
primarily on Baby AT and ATX cases. Other form factor cases will probably be slightly
different, but not much. See here for more on these and other case form
The sections that follow describe the various components that you'll find with a typical, good-quality case.
