CAVEAT : I work for Sun...

But... Why not try one of the new x2100 servers :

At 745 USD for the 1U Athlon 64 server, it's rather cheap... You may 
need to add a few options, but I'm pretty sure you will like the end price.

Note that most rack machines ARE designed for datacenters... silence is 
not their N°1 design principle.
