i'm looking to purchase a desktop for about 1.5k, it has to be as silent as possible, with at least 750gb storage, i would like hdmi out if possible. no monitor/keyboard/mouse is needed. runnng vista. the games will mostly be single player, oblivion/c&c red alert 3 are the first things i'll be playing. then fallout 3 . would prefer it if i didn't have to upgrade anything major for a few years. pre-built would be preffered. any suggestions?

Probably the best site around for that sort of thing is Cougar Extreme click here check them out.

Personally, I would stay away from PCOption/Desktop Option (same company), just in case you come across them.

Overclockers click here is another good site.

an intel i7 cpu. 1g ati 4870 with a non reference cooler, several makers have coolers that are quieter better. top quality psu with 80% + logo, some psu's now have over 90% efficiency, a quality case. thermalright ultra 120 extreme for 1366 cpu cooler.
this is the basis of a quiet gaming pc in your price range.
