    I want to see my video card. Has anyone modded their graphics amplifier casing with a window, yet?

    Would be simple to do:
    - Acrylic Piece cut-to-size (Lowes)
    - Velcro (Lowes)
    - LED light strip (AutoZone)
    Small Rotary tool to cut the size from the side of the shell, about 1" smaller than the acrylic cut-size dimensions, and file all edges smooth. Mount the acrylic on interior-side with Velcro (or Gorilla Tape).
    Then, add a small LED strip light directed downward from the top edge over the card.

    A white-trim MSI 1080 GTX Armor card would show well, too. I just ordered one...
