Default Modding my side panel

I want to add some 120mm fan slots on my side panel case. The case is a Thermaltake Xaser which already comes with two 80mm fans on the inside the case itself behind the side panel held up by a plastic swivel device (check it out at NewEgg if you like), but I'd much rather have a couple of 120mms fans on the side sucking cool air in (plus I'd place the top 120mm fan over my heatsink fan to feed it cool air directly).

So, how would I go about measuring everything out? I do have a 120mm fan on my heatsink currently that I could use to trace everything, but don't you just trace the area of the fan and then mark where I need to drill... is it that simple?

Here's a pic of what I want to do:

Mobo: Gigabyte P35-DS3R
CPU: Intel Q6600 g0 @ 3.0GHz
HSF: Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme
RAM: 4GB G.SKILL @ 4-4-4-12
VCard: EVGA 8800GTS G92 @ 700/1000
HDDs: 2x 750GB & 250GB
Optical: Sony NEC SATA DVD Burner
PSU: Silverstone 750W Modular

buy the fans u want, then measure those. take those measures onto the side panel and use the drill. those holes r a little small for a couple of 120's tho. not too much air would get through
