Just putting the idea out there...
Less important but I have to ask:
Are you going AMD on this build for the parts?
Lol, you thinking phenom....dual theme :P
I don't know what he wants in it at this point....i think he's just going to transfer over his current rig which is a 5000 BE, evga 590, SLI xfx 8800gt. He's a young guy in school so I doubt he'll be spending much on the guts right now.
That would be a cool affet the venom taking over the blue and red....i'll pitch it to him.

The idea of a web cut-out on the side panel sounds great. It would be wicked if you used something to give the "webbing" texture. Maybe even paint the texture to resemble the webbing from the comics.
Be sure to look into EL wiring, to give a ghostly cobweb effect to the interior.
That does sound awesome and is along the same line I was thinking...one problem is the side panel behind the mobo where the spider cutout would go has a ridged cross member for support that almost backs right up on the case panel so that there is no space between them which is where I'd want the sheet of plexi and the space for lighting affect. I plan on cutting a chunk out for wire management but I'd have to pretty much remove the entire beam for a nice lighting affect...will have to look at it and maybe figure something out.
As for the exterior webbing affect, that's what I like too, and is what I wanted to do but he want as super gloss black paint job, smooth as a baby's bottom. I'm not too thrilled about that. Normally I like a paint job in ultra gloss but not when there is so much hand dremel work, shows every little glitch, better to get it laser cut or watercut for that kind of paintjob....but he is adamant. The joys of working with a client :P
