Default quietest off the peg desktop

Hi

I'm looking for the quietest possible off-the-peg desktop pc out there

doesn't have to have any fancy specs

a barebones bundle would be fine as I have monitor and keyboard/mouse + o/s

ive heard dell, hp,compaq are reasonably quiet but would really also like to hear from someone who has a basic desktop thats really quiet

thanx

Well if it's just going to be used as a desktop system for email and web you could look at fanless pc's based on intel's atom processor. eg :

just add ram, 2.5" laptop hdd and o/s.

However if you need to play videos or games I wouldn't recommend an atom based pc.

Note I do not own the pc in the link above, it's just an example.
I do own an atom based system used as a media center thats fine for tv broadcasts but cant cope with HD content.
