Haha. I remember my old acrylic case. I traded cases with a friend for a while. I just couldn't take the brightness of the whole setup. So I moved on to my CM690.
That was my original build. Q66, 680i, 9600GT, 4GB OCZ...Good times, good times.
EDIT: It just reminds me of the days when I'd look at my rig and think: "I couldn't care less how it sounds or looks, I want fast! I'll never spend more than 100 on a case or color schemes!" My, how times have changed. I can't stand it when it's too loud or cables seem out of place or varicolored.
