Dell PowerEdge 420SC Server Bundle for $349 with free shipping. Works out to $401 shipped with tax included. It's a pretty low end box, with Celeron 2.53GHz, 256MB, 40GB SATA, but it also includes a free 16-port switch. Pretty good deal if you're looking for a cheap server to stick in a closet somewhere.

I don't have any experience with their budget servers, but their high-end rackmount servers are very very loud.

I doubt it's quiet.

I bought a bunch of Dell Poweredge 1800s for work. 675W power supply, standard. Moves quite a bit of air.
