Dell Dimension 8100 case removal?

I'm having a hard time taking this case apart. I'm servicing and replacing the ram/hdd for my uncle's Dell Dimension 8100 computer. Any ideas how to get this bad boy off?

I think there are buttons on the top and bottom of it that you press in, and it opens like a clam shel, with the hinge at the front.

Is it one of the newer dark grey ones?

Edit: Yeah, it's one of the newer grey ones. There are two little black buttons on the top and bottom of the case, near the back. You press them in, and then rotate the left hand side outward, toward the front of the case.
