Make sure you get a really good quality quiet PSU - it's often neglected, and will repay you well.

Also choose a really good heatsink - then you can have also a nice quiet slow revving fan for it.

I recently had the (quite new) fan fail on my new heatsink - it's running fine without a fan - a P4 2.4GHz, not cutting edge - but my room temp is 27.5º at the moment, and the processor is at 48º with just the heatsink and no fan.
