You may have to look into a Full Tower case if you want to use 200mm's as case fans (like the HAF X shown above, which has space for multiple 200/230mm fans). Most Mid Tower cases will only accomodate 120/140 configurations, with a possible option for a side panel 200mm (like the Corsair Carbide 500r).

Totally depends on what your going for. If you want a quiet pc, then go with a bigger fan. If your looking for the best cooling peformance, i would probably go with more smaller fans, like 120mm

it all depends where the fan is located, but for the most part the bigger the fan the better for case fans because the bring in massive amounts of air at relatively low volumes
