Default dad need a full tower

so i got my dad a new heat sink for his build

Intel 945
ECS N FORCE 570 Mobo
2GB DDR2 667
Antec Truepower2 550WATT
2X 6600GT

the heat sink is a thermaltake blue orb and it doesnt fit in his mid tower so i suggested returning his case and getting his money back (the case cost him around 40 bucks) and getting a full tower because he has a **** load of hard drives and he needs more room

whats a good full tower case that doesnt cost too much. he doesnt move his computer around too much so it doesnt have to be extremely sturdy or anything just something that he can fit alot of **** in and has pretty good cooling

i have a freezer 7 pro and it fits in my mid tower case. its a tight fit although it does fit. the best part was that it was only 20bucks and it lowered my cpu from about 58 full load to 40 full load. it works like a charm. and its a pentium 4 506 oc'd from 2.66 to 3.2
