What grade and variety of plywood should I buy for hidden, inside cabinet carcasses?

I've decided to build new cabinets for our kitchen, and while I'm pretty handy with power tools, I'm having trouble deciding just what type of plywood I should get for the cabinet bodies, especially for the parts that are going to be hidden on the sides against the wall. So far, I know I should get 3/4" for the sides and 1/2" plywood for the backs.
I'm planning on using poplar for the face-frames, for what it's worth.
