Also Should I make the outside real wood or stick to some plastics?

I would cover it in wood, but try to make the wood beatup or even chip it up a lil bit.

also i would try to include a wheel in the front such as this one.

Here's some ideas...

Use the wood idea (I'm doing that in part with my current project) and where it's not wood, paint the case a nice shiny black, cut a window in a wavy pattern and etch a pirate flag into it so the window looks like the flag. Have a place like HyperKore.com do the etch for you and use the V1 blackout style and then it'd look amazing when lit from within.

On the Mobo side, just for the hell of it, put a portal. It doesn't have to have an actual window, just get an old brass ship's portal (check ebay or places like that) paint the interior of the portal with an ocean scene or something, or make it the inside and paint a pirate looking out of the portal.

Get yourself a Zalman Resorator for water-cooling and build a balsa wood Lighthouse around it, put a rotating light in the top, that'd look awesome too.

The ship's wheel idea is cool, why not incorporate an analog meter in the center of it so it's functional as well as good looking?

Be sure to include a plank off the side of the case with some kind of figure being walked off it. :)

Well, that's some ideas.

Thanks guys, coming up with ideas is something I do all the time, just never have time to incorporate most of 'em. So I'll be happy to throw out more whenever I can. :)

I have to pause this Idea as of now to work on a project that might make me some money to afford this pirate case......bye
