[rescue] Wanted: quiet desktop PC for Ubuntu

I need another Ubuntu box, and it needs to be quiet. I'm thinking
something with a 2+ GHz CPU (not picky about which), at least 2G
of RAM, and a decent video card -- I'm not a gamer, so probably
the most intensive graphical thing I do is watch video from hulu.
I've got a pair of 250G IDE disks sitting around, so don't need
disks, but (a) will certainly take them and (b) would prefer a box
that'll take two disks, so that I can mirror. DVD drive would be nice,
but CD probably works too. This is an upgrade for a Dell Dimension 2400,
which has worked nicely in its role but is too resource-starved for
what I need it to do.
