Cool first case mod :)

This is my first case mod so go easy. Just started today and already got the side cut out (pic below), i plan to have either Blue or UV lights shineing through (havent decided, opinions would be nice!). What would any of you suggest for a name? I'm thinking "Experiment 65" or "HKZ-18"

Just for some info on the case (only half pictured) its and old Gateway "2000" that had a Pentium non-MMX 133MHz 16mb RAM. I think it was orgianlly made for AT but i'm going to use it for ATX, hopefully it wont need modded to much for that.

Anyway, tell me what you guys/gals think.

Note: you get a bonus cause my kitty got in the pic somehow

Hrm, looking good so far. Some green lights or maybe UV would go great with it.

my definion of butcher when it comes to HP (desktops anyway) is shoot the H311 out of it with a gun (anything bigger than a 22)

HPs are jokes. I technically have one (Compaq Presario) and the Samsung in it is already dying. I blame HP.
