Default Orange Box Case Mod

A few friends of mine and I are thinking of doing a case mod themed around Valve's Orange Box. A few things, though;

1. A good case to mod, obviously. Thinking a full tower, if possible this one.

2. We want to be able to make fan grills shaped like "Portals", and put some sort of montage of TF2/HL2 stuff on the side.

3. Obviously, this case is going to be an "orange box". With orange LEDs. And maybe a very strong crowbar for a handle.

Anyone have any suggestions for a good case that could fit?

how much are you planning to spend total on the case mod?

the end cost will probably be 2 to 3 times higher than that

if you cant take the financial hit, then dont attempt one, it will just be a waste of your money

depends, put a sketch together and go from there....how extensive a mod are you talking about? paint and fan grill changes or are you getting into the cutting and re-wiring? Throw something together on paint or photoshop for what you want as an end result, that would help to match the case to the needs.
