Talking Building / Buying a portable desktop

I might be interested in building my own portable desktop.
The case would be small. like...13'' and below and have all the general parts of a computer, but i would want to game with it. I'd mainly play Counter Strike: Source.

And i wouldnt bring it EVERYWHERE, like a laptop.
But, i want to mod an lcd screen. Like as big as the case is.

Can i get tips or feedback?

So, you would like to build your own laptop, or just have a really small PC that you can bring to LAN parties?

Just so we know. .

I think he means getting a small computer and putting an lcd on it, so it's similar to a laptop. Would be cool if you could mod a battery on it too. Are you gonna use this as a sort of laptop? or just something easy to carry around?
Heres the kind of case i think your looking for
You might wanna find one without a handle. Whats your budget as far as parts go?
This might work even better, it's 17 inches so you ccould mount a 17" flat panel pretty well.
