Where can I find a ready-made quiet PC for less than £500 including VAT but without a monitor?

Suggested specifications:

• AMD Athlon 2400 XP processor • 512 Mbytes DDR RAM • 40 Gbyte Hard Drive • CD-RW drive • DVD drive • 128 Mbyte Graphics card • onboard sound • ethernet • midi-tower case • 1 free 5¼" drive bay • 1 year on-site warranty + 2 years back to base • Windows XP Home • medium sized company that has a decent chance of surviving for five years.

Decent value, well known company etc., but no special mention of a Quiet PC case or other special components. My current Evesham Quest system is still going, but it just is a bit too noisy for my liking, and it is getting near to retirement age (3 years). I would like to replace it rather than repair or try to upgrade it. I am not expecting it to pack up just yet, but it is showing some signs of old age, so I'm starting to look at system unit replacements.

There's a store in Stockingswater Lane, Enfield. The PC seems about right. Medion are well known. Maybe available from PC World too.

I got the dreaded BSOD again yesterday when switching on my PC. A reboot fixed the problem, but this could be the beginning of the end for my current PC.

I am still looking for a quiet PC base unit to replace this one if it packs up all of a sudden. Any other suggestions/recommendations?

May just be a driver conflict
