This isn't much of a mod but I'll be spraying some parts for looks so I figured I'd post it. Should be done before tuesday. This is my first client build!
Current Progress

Parts:
NZXT Gamma Classic w/black interior
Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB
LG 22x DVD Burner
Gigabyte GA78LMT-S2P
Thanks to dpk33:
Antec Earthwatts 500W (deciding whether or not I'll paint this, it will add a lot of work)
AMD Phenom II 965
Cooler Master Hyper 212+
2x2GB AData 1600MHz DDR3
Thanks to Chino:
XFX 6870

Its about $50 shipped. I don't have the case but I hear it feels a bit flimsy. I like the design and it's got a lot of great features for its price, so the sacrifice of strength shouldn't bug me

I hear the NZXT Source 210 is good too, or check out the Vulcan, or Corsair 300r

My case will arrive today, pics up (hopefully) tonight. If the case comes in by 5:00 they'll be decent looking pics. If not then you'll get 3-4 shots from an iPad in poor lighting until tomorrow

The Source 210/220 are pretty good budget cases imo. I've used one for a client build, I did custom loop in a 210 for my wife and I have a 220 for my folding rig. The Gama is still a sweet case for it's age. Need those pics!

Hope I don't disappoint, but the mods will be very small.

Well here is the extent of the modding! I will be painting the PSU (as it is a green antec earthwatts), and I believe that will be all the modding for this build.

i love the blue! i also like how you didnt over do it. i have seen people just do too much of one color, but you did a good job with it.
