Need Help Finding a Budget Case Good for Noise Reduction and Air Flow?

I know it's a lot to ask on a budget scale, but I am just sick of my current PC case and need something new without spending much of the little money I have right now. I'm after a case that's preferably under £60, and even the peak of £60 isn't really a price I want to pay. My current case is a Cooler Master Storm Scout, and although it has good airflow, the thing just lets all the noise out and is horrific when playing games. Not to mention it collects dust horribly. It needs to be a mid tower ATX case, and having lots of bay slots isn't a problem, as I only run with a single hard drive right now. I'm also not bothered too much about looks, as it will be sat below my desk and out of sight anyway. One thing to note is that I have an XFX Radeon HD 7950, which is absolutely massive in length, so a roomy case would be nice too!

Thanks

p.s. I cant reply to messages right away as I'm about to go to bed! :)

The Corsair Carbide Series 200R is one of those budget oriented cases that comes in at a mere $59, but includes a ton of features to make it suitable for anyone looking to build a new PC, but is limited to a budget.

With support for up to 8 fans, dust filters for the PSU and intake, tool free design, and a clearance of up to 320mm for those extra long graphics cards, it’s a beast of a case that doesn’t carry a beast of a pricetag

Ok thanks, I've had a brief look at the Corsair 200r and it does look quite nice for the price. However, while it seems great for air flow it also looks like it will just rattle around and let out noise, being just a simple metal case with no noise dampening?
