You could do what I had planned to do to mine (until the rents made me give it up )

* Spray Paint the case
* Cut a hole in one of the sides, and add nice lights/cathodes/whatever, but make sure your PSU can handle it
* Get some glowing IDE cables

It's a good idea however it's kind of stupid to make a PI look so nice. What I would do is buy a cheapass ATX case from www.newegg.com and mod that case. Then put your good computer in it. Unless of course that's an ATX case, then mod away!
