I am planning on buying a new PC but I hate pc noise. I was wondering if anyone has suggestions on what I should get. i hear alot of people have the Area 51. How would you rate the noise it produces. My friend has the Dell XPS and it is very loud. Any silentsuggestions would be nice

The Area 51 is THE LAST one you want to get. Great for gaming but its noisy.

What's your budget?

Falcon-Northwest offers awesome gaming PC's and have a quiet system package for $109.

There aren't too many of them out there, but you could look for a watercooled PC. Those things are SILENT. No noise. And, they are way, way better for cooling. However, look at spending at extra $600-1000 for that. Yeah, ouch. You can get a somewhat reasonably priced one at www.hardwaregods.net (http://www.hardwaregods.net). But that isn't that good of a name. If you've got cash to burn, buy a Voodoo F-Class Stealth (to be releases in a few months). It'll set you back about $6500, but it is the best.

Hope that helps! Good luck.

PS: I'd go for the Falcon-NW.

Commodore 64.
No noise

Of course: no fan, No memory, No hard drive, No new games....

Hmmm. May not want that advice after all.

DELL??? You have GOT to be kidding. I would have thought that somebody with a sig like that would have SOME computer taste. Over priced peices of junk. Package systems are NOT the way to go for any gamer, unless its by falcon, alien ect. I put together 2 systems for the price of 1 dell equivalent. So what if the warrenty is good. For the extra money I saved, I could have walked into any stored and bought a better hard drive or burner or motherboard and still have cash left over.



Dell.



(ps, no offence to anyone with a dell, they just make me so mad/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif )

If a Area 51 PC gets overheated (meaning more RPMs for the cooler) while downloading Pr0n, and no one
is there to hear it, does it still make a sound?

I believe the proper terminology would be "Ohh, shot down." Not "smaked down." Just to set things straight.

Ha Ha I ask a simple question about silent pc's and everbody gets into angruments about smacking. People said I didnt give specs. Whoops I figured it was assumed i wanted somehwhat of a high end as I asked in a video game forum. I was looking at P4 3.0GHZ 1024 SDDRAM 120GIG HD ATI RADEON 9800 SB audigy 2. Thanx again and I appreciate the input

we're not arguing lunar...it's just a little friendly ribbing between forum-goers...

as for a high-end PC with low noise, you may find it difficult to find...with more speed, you get a little more heat, which leads to more cooling (more fans) which leads to more noise...

if you don't really care about costs, get a water-cooled system professionally done...relatively quiet, especially for the speed you get...other than that, your best bet is to look at the major pc companies: HP, Dell, e-machines, Sony, etc...



Scrub: you only wish Kimi called you...hahaha...

For the quiet computer, get a good Koolance Water Cooling system, a Enermax Wisper power supply, and stealth fans.

Pace... those Thermaltake cases are overpriced, u can get the exact same case for $45, minus the Themaltake logo.

It is a great case tho, Ive built about a half dozen modded comps using it... heres one a pic of one.

As for quiet pcs, watercooling is definatly an option, but there are also quiet powersupplys, case fans, and cpu fans that do pretty well to that end as well. And theyre not much more expensive than their rather noisy counterparts.

The Thermaltake Xaser Silent Purepower 480W is one example, and the Globalwin Crystal cpu fan are examples of quite parts used in this pc.

What!? WHAT!!?? You think your badass with that PC, but I'm the real stuff. You know how it is... Best Buy brand (VPR), cookie wrapper next to <u>Road to Perdition</u>, crap headphones and a utility knife, wireless router, and a blue cup. O...Yyyyeaaahhh. Not to mention I have your post on my monitor...
