            Nice job. But all I have to say is that all of you mofo's who have motherboards with everything on them SUCK! Try making a case which requires you to be able to insert and remove pci/agp cards!!! It must have made my project 3 times longer.

                Actually, its not that hard.. what seems to be the problem?? (no, I haven't made one, but know how I would go about it if I did)

                  Just the planning so that you have some way of screwing the cards in, making the precise measurements so they line up with the square holes. Cutting each of the square holes knowing that if you mess up, you might not be able to plug your vga cable or sound in, it just seemed so tedious and must have taken me almost a week in itself to finally do. It might have taken less time if I would only have cut holes for the video plug in the vga slot and the sound and NIC, but I wanted to be able to remove these cards and put something else in their place if need be, so I cut all 6 openings out. It was relaly a lot of work, especially making the measurements. As it stands right now, the fit is so tight when I insert and remove a card it makes me think I'm going to break it, but after its in, it fits perfectly and is impossible to move.

                    I have to agree with u on this one. Especially if it is a full blown pc.

                      Why not just remove the metal card mounting pannel from teh back of an old computer case??

                        I hate to say it, but MP3kid has the right idea here. If you use the back end of another case it looks better, provides you with a ground for your cards and is really easy.

                            Nice generalisation. I chose a small mobo so I could have a small system, it's a nice bonus that my case was easy to make. Now I realise how much I suck I'll have to go buy the biggest fattest mobo I can and shove as many cards as I can into it.

                              Oh come on, removing the back from another case? I *did* want a plexi case here! Expansion cards are grounded through their pci/agp/isa contacts anyway. But yes, I have a full-size ATX motherboard with a big ol' SB AUDIGY and G400 in there. If I made another plexi case though, I'd definitely want access to a laser cutter.
