Plans:
Mounting the two green cathodes in the front part of the hdd bays (invisible with side panel on) and then having the top 80mm fan replaced with a green led one. Green/red contrast would look pretty good I think. Replacing ugly stock grills with chrome ones just for some more added "ooh ahh".

Cathodes are ugly and too bright, the kid will most likely get sick of them, get into led's instead. ^And yes the p35 ds3l is also a good board for cheap.

I'd recommend getting the Q6600, it's not that much more expensive and for the price it's an amazing processor. I also agree with the LEDs, cathodes are way too bright for me, just LEDs on my fans light up my entire case enough. It's up to you though (or him as it were).

Wiremanagement idea.
Solid lines will be visible.
Broken lines will be behind tray.
Im going to dremmel a few holes in the tray to run wires. I didn't put the sata power cables in this because it would've made it confusing to look at but im going to just run them behind the tray and make them come out behind the drive bays.

Oh, and add some Right angle sata connectors to my buy list
