I broke my budget and am getting the plexiglass to build the nice looking case. My concern is static and grounding issues. Anyone with a plexiglass case have any suggestions or comments?
I have a acrylic case and havn't had any problems so far. As far as grounding I wired the MB, HD, and power supply up to one female bannana jack in the back of the case, then I can take a wire connected to the car chassis and plug it into the bannana jack to ground the whole thing. I have heard that if you take a 50/50 solution of water and fabric softener and coat the inside of the case it will prevent static build up.

I would recommend keeping some of those antistatic gel packs in the case to help with static, but you shouldn't have any trouble so long as everything is well grounded.
Know where I can pick up a few of those?
