I would get 2 cans of Primer. I was able to paint the inside of the case and the inside of the doors plus the DVDRW with about 1 3/4 cans of paint. I used a stripping pad to rough up the surface and then used a fine texture which is very rough surface. It also depends on if you are using a gloss, satin or matte surface. If you are going for a gloss you want to sand down the primer very smooth and want a very even surface which will require more primer. A satin or matte surface is more forgiving. I pefer a texture which is a matt with a sparkle to it, its very forgiving and very hard to mess up. One thing is make sure you wait between primer and top coat and I suggest waiting a week before handling since the longer you wait the less easily the paint will scratch.
