Okay, I recently acquired a Dell 2408WFP monitor...its amazing. Anyways, my desk is quite small and just setting my macbook out on the desk is taking up space and I have a cooling pad which takes up even more space. Summer is coming up and im planning on "building" a tower to put it in. I know this sounds kind of strange but I want to build a completely custom case not just buy and empty tower and put it in it. Design wise im having no problems, but I'm concerned with the material I should use to build the tower. Due to limited technology I will most likely use metal because I have access to a plasma cutter and a MIG welder. I need suggestions on the type of metal I should use. Im not sure what prices run on most metals but I need something durable and cheap. Also I plan to custom mount some fans inside the tower to cool it, but I need a way to power them and I don't want to buy a big tower power supply (the point is space saving and cheap). Any suggestions on type of material to build it or power supply will be greatly appreciated! If you have any designs or other suggestions I'm all ears as well!
