Remove the side, draw out a nice window to scale on the inside of it.
Dremel with a fine bit as carefully as you can around the outline.
Then you can get plexiglass or clear plastic and cut it to size too.
Then get some locking nut bolts and screws to keep it in place.

This is a rough walkthrough, but if you cant figure that out then you shouldnt be cutting holes in computers!!

thanks, i just worried because i dont want to repaint it. i only have a jigsaw but my dad might have a bremal. i guess if you cut it wrong u can always sand it into a shape to hid you mistake lol. on a scale of 1 to 10 how hard would it be to do it, and a average job of it to?
