Sorry, there's no "cheap" hard drive nowadays due to the price hike from the flooding, if you are looking for a new one.
You can consider recycling existing old hard drives if their capacity satisfies you, and that it is SATA interface at least. Otherwise, a 500GB will take about $80.
As for the computer case... if you want one that's halfway decent at any rate, expect to spend $50 or so on it.
I only need enough room for Diablo 3 and Windows on the hard drive. I'm thinking around 60GBs.
I think I'm going to go looking through the trash for abandoned computers and see if I see a case. Damn Dells use some weird BTX or something though.
If you don't need that much space, I would strongly recommend you spend a little more for a 60/64GB SSD.
As for the case:
How about something like this?
Lol you are high end consumer Kalganized. This build is for a separate computer just for Diablo because my primary desktop (AMD FX 8150, 8GB RAM, GTX 560Ti, . . .) is busy with work. So this is an extreme budget build so I can play Diablo while my simulations are running.
Okay, here goes:
AMD Phenom X3 8600
2 x 1GB DDR 2 800 MHz
ATI HD 4850
Nexus Value 430 PSU
A 60GB SATA HDD from a salvaged Mac Mini(maybe not sure if damaged)
I've spent $93.50 so far. I was trying to get it under $100, but the case is going to break the bank.

Usually you have all the answers lol. $350 on Newegg is actually really stellar. To you have a copy of that build?
This is what I would do for a build that I wouldn't care about upgrading at all:
CPU: AMD A6-3500 @ $80
Motherboard: Gigabyte FM1 motherboard @ $50
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 2x2GB, DDR3-1866 @ $35
Power Supply: SeaSonic SS-300ET @ $40
Hard Disk: Mushkin Chronos 60GB SSD @ $68
DVD Drive: Random $18 Drive
Case: Rosewill Case
