Cheap acrylic sheet?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to build an acrylic side panel for my comp to install a couple of fans on so I can get my case temps down a bit, and I was wondering if anyone knew of a place I could get cheap acrylic sheet? I already know of freckleface, anything cheaper around? Also, I was wondering if you guys think 1/8" thickness would be sufficient for a whole side panel?

They are quite a bit more expensive than a few places I have stumbled across on google by about $10 for a 24"x24" sheet.
