Here are some cages I would concider. Remember, just because the bird is small, doesn't mean a large cage and lots of toys and perches is a bad thing.

I did some research for you, a linnie needs a large cage, more along the lines of what I posted, they are very active little birds. A single budgie could survive in the cages you are posting (size wise) but would be much happier in a bigger cage.
Have you tried looking in your local newspaper or on craigslist to see if anyone is selling cages in your area that are in good shape and cheap?
Also, while this cage isn't very deep, it is wide and tall, and fits in your price range, check the small one. Bird Aviaries & Flight Cages: Economical Clean Life Flight Cages
These cages are on sale and aren't too bad either http://www.drsfoster...tid=13391&r=488 The tallest one is $65 on sale and the stand is an extra $30, but not needed.
Remember, your bird's cage is like your bedroom. While a small room is adequate, a larger room makes you happier.
If you waited a while, could you save up some more money to buy a larger cage?
With either of these cages, you still need other sizes and styles of perches and toys.

also, keep in mind how long your keet will be in the cage during the day. if it will be in there for a significant part of the day (more than a few hours) then i would get the largest cage possible. if the cage is only going to be used for sleeping/resting and eating, then i suppose a smaller cage will do. but, in any event, i would still get a large flight cage (with lots of toys and perches) and allow many hours of out of cage time each day.
Gook Luck with your Linnie .
