I have been thinking about making myself a case while using an open air case as the starting point.

I want to start with this open air case. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

i would like to build around this with plexi glass, add fans, lights, and customize it too my liking.

I have never built a case before so i would liek to know how to go about this and how difficult this may be.

any help will be appreciated

Ambitious much? :D 
Seriously you would be better off with one of these:

Stability would be a major issue in your purposed build. Not to mention cost. Good luck to you. :)

the problem with them is none of them will fit what i plan on having, i have a 6970 and plan to xfire in the future so i would like good space and airflow.

i dont want anything extravagant. i would love to just have the open air but the temps arent too great when xfiring with it plus i need at least 2 fans for my liquid cooling so i just want a cube.

Maybe you could get something like these and then modify it. As I said stability on a homemade acrylic case would be an issue. You have to move it after all and if your adhesive isn't just right it could fall apart or collapse. Its not that easy of a material to work with and get it right.
