Silent PC

I've got an old 1.7GHz PC that needs to be ditched for a new Core2 Duo model, just wondering how noisy something like the Arbico CD6750 XL or equivalent £500ish package PCs will be, is it worth opting for a 'Quiet PC'?

PS: I don't do any gaming!

What exactly is a "Quiet PC" is this some sort of option they give you?

I have two standard computers that I use daily, both are quiet (to my ears), not like some of the printers that I use :O)

You can buy 'quiet' computers, with all sorts of refinements and attachments, with prices to suit. But personally I wouldn't go to all that expense and bother, when a well maintained standard computer will do

The Medion 6486 PC is very quiet,and is in your price range,it has a passive graphics card,cant hear the cpu or psu fans,at times you will hear the HD when having to work hard

is so quiet that sometimes the only way of knowing that it's running at all is to look for the green light on the front. If I concentrate hard I can just detect a very faint hum, but it's the quietest machine I've ever used.
