Thinking about cutting some holes into my antec 900 so I can reroute cables. Whats a cheap easy way to do this?

I actually just added some holes in my case to route cables for the first time ever, and I was wonderfully surprised how easy it was. My dad had everything I needed except for the grommet edging which is cheap. And you might want to think about extension cables unless your PSU has some long cables.

Here's what I used:

1 - A Drill

2 - A Bi-Metal Hole Saw ($15-20)

3 - Hand File ($10-15)
To smooth out sharp edges

4 - Grommet Edging ($1.50 per ft) http://tinyurl.com/y9oj4gb
Put it around the hole you cut in order to keep cables from being damaged by sharp edges

Awesome. Seems pretty cheap enough and may look cool with grommet edging.

Well I'm sure if you just ask around amongst your friends and family someone is bound to have these tools that you can borrow. Yeah the grommet edging very nice, but I guess it's not necessary if your able to file the hole smooth enough. Just to make sure you don't slice into cables, I would think it's a good idea.
