    Quick and dirty way would be at Staples or WalMart, they are kinda deep for dvd and disc sized games though, they are also cheaply made. About 50 bucks if I remember right.
    I bought one and modified it with threaded rod so you can use it without that cardboard backing they come with. This made it much more rigid, and since I don't have against the wall I can put games on both sides.

    I actually went to Walmart today to look for something like this. I considered getting the Media Shelf for like 40 bucks that held 220 DVDs but I ended up getting the plastic drawers thing for like 12 bucks, it hermetic so dust won't get in. You just clse the drawers and its was cheaper that going with a wood thing. I got a booshelf from Costco for my books and wrestling belts and its like $250, good for what it is. One of those things that are POS but look classy.

    I was at Ikea today and I can second that. The price is good and the quality is also there.

    Ikea dude. It might be cheap particle board and it might smell like you dunged on a wooden bench but it'll be cheap and will do the job.

    I post these pics every time this question comes up. If you've got wall space, Billy's and Benno's from Ikea work great. The costs are pretty decent as well. Billy's will require double stacking, which can be annoying, but if you're looking for storage over access, you can't be beat.


    Billies, showing some 'classic' stuff.


    And some other 'classic' stuff



    Benno's are really aimed at CD/DVD storage and can really require lots of wall space to get a decent amount of stuff stored, but it allows for single deep, which can be nicer for display.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.
