Default kegerator

so i've decided that I am going to buy a used fridge and turn it into a kegerator. I don't currently keg, so I'm curious as to what dimentions I need to look at in a fridge that would fit at least 3 corny kegs and a 5lbs co2 tank. Any suggestions?

The best way to size a fridge/freezer is to cut out pieces of cardboard the diameter of a corny (i believe 9") and several with you when you go shopping for the appliance.

Just put them on the ground and see how many will fit.
