Video Game Shelves

So, I'm starting to run into a space issue with my game collection as shown here (sorry for the picture quality, took it with my cell):

And there seems to be 30-32 inches above the rack on my back wall that I can work with:

Not to mention all of those NES, SNES, and N64 games I'd like to put in some universal game cases with sleeve inserts and print some covers off from the cover project to make it look nice (and it helps protect it from dust). Hey, it turned out pretty well for all of my Sega CD, Dreamcast, and PS1 games in DVD cases.

So either I can:

1. Purchase a new shelving unit that will fit my needs.
or
2. Take a crack at building one myself.

Now I've been looking at option #2 going to websites like Lowes and Home Depot, get about two 1"x6"x8' boards (cut them down to 6 feet each since my room is only a little taller than that), and then more of the same lumber to cut into as many separate shelves as needed.

Has anyone here ever built their own video game shelves to house their games and can possibly share some of their experiences on what to do and what not to do?

Or is there a video game/media shelving unit at a store that you'd recommend getting instead to fit a large number of games?

Jam it back in, in the dark.

Well I've kinda talked myself out of building my own shelves and will wait until next month to see the deals for media shelving units, but I did finish putting all of my games into either DVD cases, Universal Game cases, or DS cases. This took about 3-4 months off and on.

I'm pretty pleased with the results.
