With the monitor and speakers unplugged, it might as well not be, unless you run batch jobs
or serve data to other machines.

CPU - 2.53 GHz P4
mem 512 mb
disk  100 gb western digital

My speakers used to buzz.  They got their 12 volts from the computer.  When I switched them to a separate
power supply (GE regulated wall wart supply) the buzz stopped.  watch out for dirty power!

Had on a 48dB 5k Delta fan and had to take it off because it sounded like i was in a plane waiting to get airborn >_<
switched to a 32dB toshiba fluid bearing fan and leave the case open.

its pretty quite when there's a power failure 

figure its time to go to water-cooling or get the new WD360 10k IDE drive, choices, choices
its interesting to see everyones choices/setups
even if they are a bit wierd about wanting silent computers 

other machines, like old girlfriends, best not talked about
