Well, don't buy from Maplin, they're aweful for price.

£30 is generally the minimum for a decent case - something like this, from Ebuyer might be good for you. It's £30 inc VAT+delivery.

is there any other cases?

It comes with one 120mm fan, and can only fit two 120mm fans.

I was searching for cases, and I was going to suggest that Coolermaster case too. It seemed like the best one in the price range.

That particular case can have up to 2 120mm fans, one intake and one output.

If you want to have more fans, you'll have to up your budget to £40+

Edit: Heh, Xandu beat me to it :P

Why 80mm fans? They're generally more noisy than 120mm fans.

No doubt for that price range:
Antec 300 Three Hundred Case - No PSU - Ebuyer

Just get one 120mm fan for the front and you're set.
