yeah i do agree it would be a bit of a pain to connect things and it would make it a hassel to plug in USB's and such but just right now i thought that i can just make usb ports at the back and have the ones from the mobo extended or somthing along those lines. but with both sidepanels removable and the bottom area being fairly roomy it could be done. anyway these are the screenies

Well good luck. I have a friend who is doing Industrial Design here at Virginia Tech. I been in studio with her a few times. It was pretty interesting. I'm just not creative enough for that work. I knew how to actually build stuff better then her but I had no idea what to actually build, haha.

If you go with aluminum you're going to have to paint or powdercoat it or something like that but if done right they usually look better then acrylic IMO. Using both should definitely be an option but it comes down to money like usual.
