Default Duke Nukem Case Color?

I have decided to create a Duke Nukem 3D custom computer case. I have the case and some plans drawn up. Official thread will open when I get some pictures taken. My main question is this.

What color should the case be? I can aquirre any type of spray paint if I have the brand and color. I am just stumped on what color goes with the game best. Any ideas?

Default Duke Nukem Case Official Thread

I have decided to create a Duke Nukem Case. The game is an original FPS and I thought a case would be appropriate.

The case I will be using.





The digital mock up.

1




2



I will use RED L.E.D. fans. and red lights on the inside. the Light blue is the window and the lower duke nukem logos are 90mm or 120mm fans. or I will go water cooling. I have not decided.

16x7.75x16.5

It's only .5" smaller in length then my current case. Plus, I got it for free.

Hate to be a ****, but I really don't think that's going to come out looking remotely good.

But it's your case, do what you want.

I generally try and keep things simple.
