Sparkfun has a some helpful tips for casing up electronics projects – good tips for board and switch mounting specifically.

One thing to keep in mind during all of this: as in all things, there will be a lot of back and forth when you find a box that you think might work, then something else interferes (ie, the height of your power jack). Keep your patience near by because it’ll be easier to work through the numbers now as apposed to later when you have a box in hand with a few holes in it and your unit wont fit.
