Roughed up PC case...weird request...

I want a used computer case for when I get the time/money to build a PC. I kind of want an older case that's beaten up and pretty crappy looking, but yet still fits modern parts. I want to have a computer that looks pretty crappy so people laugh when they see it, but yet runs like crazy.

Maybe this should go in "Everything Else?" If so, please move it.

You can buy new cases for less than $20 new from any computer supply store. Just get one of those that meets your specifications, then have some fun. Take some 100-grit sandpaper and go to work on the outside of it. Make it look really crappy. Put duct tape in random places, and roughly paint some parts of it with household latex paint and wire brushes. Chucking it down your driveway a couple of times couldn't hurt much, either.
