Dang, it's going to cost me a lot of time and money to make the case... but what did I expect? A white glowing cube with a clear plastic coating... it's hard to explain the idea in my head.

I'm aiming for something simplistic and futuristic. I'm not worried about hardware, I'm sure I can cram everything I need into a 7" x 7" x 7" cube. I'm worried about making it glow. The cube would have a soft white glow, the power button would glow red when turned off, and blue when on, and the DVD drive would glow blue when a disk in inserted. Bah, this is going to be a fun project when I get the money and tools and time and materials to do it.

And yes, Micro ITX boards are smaller then 7", which is why I want the size I do.

You could pick up on of those Zotac Mini ITX mobos.
For the lighting, you could always just use some white LEDs or Cathodes.

Yeah, I'm looking at those, though I might want something better then an Atom. Built in video is not a problem. The computer it self would probably be running Ubuntu or something.
