I've cleaned up acrylic with a heat gun before. I looked into the novus stuff for cleaning up 3d prints too. Are most side panels actually acrylic or are some polycarbonate? I'd figure acrylic since it's shinier and less expensive, mostly the less expensive reason though. There are lots of youtube videos on smoothing either one with polish or heat guns. Might be worth the time to check there to see if your expections would be met with either method.

First thought that came to my mind was one of the hybrid drives. From what I understand they try to intelligently cache things in the solid state portion so it may take a few times of playing a game for it to load into that portion. For multiplayer games that use the same maps repeatedly it sounds like a good idea. For single player games that load levels in a sequential order, it seems the cache logic wouldn't give you any advantage though. Anyone have any real world experience with these drives?

I could see it accepting 120hz, and just dropping frames.

Also, to double check that you're getting 120Hz vs 60Hz, I remember there being a program that you could watch as it moved a white box around the screen, it would visibly skip spaces @ 60Hz vs 120Hz.
