Acrylic is brittle. Keep that in mind. IT will break if it's flexed too much, and it can spider out too. I would highly recommend building the case out of wood first. IT will me MUCH more forgiving. Once you've given that a go, I would get some 1/4" polycarbonate for any flat panels, 1/2" polycarbonate for structural support, and 1/16" acrylic for anything that may need to be bent or rounded. You can't bend polycarbonate like you can acrylic, but I can take one of the 4' x 5' x 1/4" sheets I have, bend it in the middle, and sit on the top edge, and it will support my weight no questions asked. And I weigh 200lbs.
