Help with new cage for GCC

Hello everyone! I need to get a new cage for my green cheek and I was looking at these three.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Large-New-Bi...9&cmd=ViewItem
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bird-Cage-La...item53f4519a55
http://www.ebay.com/itm/24x22x53-Bir...item5d3a22fae6

My budget is $180, I wish I could afford more but argh I'm just a poor college student
I want to get the safest/largest cage I can afford.
I'm open to suggestions for any other cages within my budget thanks everyone!

My GCC mostly spends most of the day outside her cage, so she'll mainly just be in here for sleeping and while I'm in school (2 days a week ).

I just ordered this cage... https://www.americas-pet-store.com/l...Q-13221~~~.gif ... It is for my new tiel... (It is also the 4th of this cage I have bought from this company... I like their service.) I like this cage for the quality.. It is amazingly sturdy and well built. It is 32" x21" x35", 53 inches on included stand. I have 2 green and one blue.. The new cage was ordered in blue also. It is 168.99 shipping included.... I have 5 budgies in one... A parrotlet in one... A GCC in one and the last will be for my tiel.

Here is what I would get. It's a flight cage. Very spacious, and not too expensive.
I would suggest getting one made by A&E or HQ, both great brands from what I've
heard.

Looks great!!

Only thing I would say is try to lock those guillotine type doors.. They can be easily lifted by a smart GCC!!!

Thanks, and yeah the little bugger already figured out how to open those types of doors in her previous cage >_<. I'll probably use cable ties for the doors I never use and something else for the food doors
