You misunderstand what I mean by fit/finish. The finish part is not what the surface is like, it's putting the finishing touches on something rather than just shipping it straight from the line warts and all.

A quality case is typically much more solid than a standard one and includes much higher quality materials.

Aluminum is a perfect example... you can make a $50 aluminum case out of recycled pop cans and call it all aluminum, or you can use aircraft grade aluminum like my original 60 series Lian Li had. There's just no comparing the two.

Weight is another huge factor... my cosmos S was built solidly out of an aluminum frame and my whole WC build came it at 50lbs. Building the same case out of steel without sacrificing structural integrity would probably have added another 10lbs if not more.
