Here's my 2 cents worth to the discussion:
I nowadays always recommend people to put noise reduction as one of the top priorities when choosing a case and components for a new PC. From personal experience of using both noisy PC's before and this almost a silent one now, I can say that the pleasure of low PC noise is well worth the extra effort, money and the potential - but usually quite small if any - decrese in performance.
For those needing unbiased advice in this matter, there are at least these two good web sites having lots of good hints and reviews to help in finding the best low noise components:
