So I'm not sure if they're standard sizes or if each case is going to be wildly different.

Or if there's a better solution to my issue;

Basically I have a window in my side panel but it's a plexi plastic window which scratches easy and is hard to clean. I've seen that tempered glass is all the rage now as it's much cleaner and clearer. 

I would like to replace mine with tempered glass, basically, but if I can just replace the glass or the side panel, that seems less hassle then replacing the case altogether.

Is it possible to do?

Depends on the case, how it mounts, etc...

If your case doesn't specifically sell replacement side panels you're probably better off just getting a new case with the features you want.

There are cases with Tempered Glass in the sub $100 range now so it's doable.

If there is no image, Mikey broke something...

I'd honestly buy a new case and transplant.

Just buy a new case, remove the tempered glass panel from that case, and glue it onto your case. Easy solution.
