First thing I see right off is to cut those crappy stock fan "grills" off and put on some after market ones. Not only do they look cooler, but they're more efficient as well.

After that, get a window in there and maybe etch something into it, or get some cool decals (www.xoxide.com has some cool ones).

Then paint it and get some lights.

There's so much you could do with that thing, El wire, Light up feet for it, so much...
I wouldn't go super flashy with it, just do something that comes to mind and looks nice. It'll be cool to tell people you did that when they look at your case.
