Default best value for a LARGE case?

I am going to start building my system soon and I want a BIG and fairly cheap case. I was wondering what you guys would recommend.

Are you looking for a full tower case? Or would a mid tower case fit your needs? Some things that would help, how many bays do you want, and how many you plan on using. In my mid tower case I am using 8 of the 10 bays. If you want a front bay for a sound card, fan control, and two or three optical drives, and a few hard drives go for the full tower. But keep in mind you needs.

Here is a listing of the full towers that Newegg sells. Prices are from low to high: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...roperty&DEPA=1

And here is ZipZoomFly's list: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...10102&SortBy=A

I like the first one in ZipZoomFly's list. That's what I, personally, get.
