$300 max i pay.. £150 in my money and thats for the snazzy CM Stacker. Bit overpriced but if i like something i dont really worry about the price.

i love the one where the dude didnt even buy a case and used a cardboard box.. classic

8 fans makes it undesirable?
i'm not getting your gist

Paid $220 for my Thermaltake Mozart TX Cube Full Tower. I would not trade it for anything, I love the room in it. That is also my limit, for now.

You want an equal amount of air going into the case as exhausting from the case. If only a certain amount of air is being exhausted at a time, it doesn't matter how much is being taken in, it's really just moving air around.

8 fans running, ineffectively cooling.. why? When I can run with at most 4, cool fine, and have it much quieter

Well, you are right to some degree.

But it is also good to either develope + or - pressure in the case.

How do you figure? Optimally, you want it to be equal.
