Bringing a bit of peace and quiet to the workstation.

Quiet computing is an art form that isn't easily mastered, but once achieved, you'll wonder how you ever managed to tolerate a roaring PC. AVADirect claims you won't have to with its whisper quiet workstation configurations . There are two models to choose from, one with a single Xeon processor and other with two Xeon parts inside, both of which have been carefully constructed to keep a low noise profile.

"Using a series of supported, low-noise cases and noise reduction accessories, AVADirect has created state-of-the-art Quiet Workstation Configurations at the disposal of all end-users seeking a powerful, yet quiet solution that was once thought to be impossible," AVADirect stated in a press release .

The custom PC builder said its quiet machines utilize noise reduction accessories such as rubber washers, screws, fan brackets, power supply brackets, low noise fans, and several hand-selected silencer kits. Pricing starts at around $1,916 and includes a Fractal Design Define XL R2 full tower chassis, Intel Xeon E5 2603 quad-core processor, Prolimatech Megahalems Rev. C air cooler, Gigabyte GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI motherboard, 16GB of Crucial DDR3-1066 RAM, Asus GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics card, Western Digital 1TB Caviar Black hard drive, Seasonc X-850 power supply, 24X DVD burner, and Windows 7 Ultimate.

If a workstation isn't up your alley, AVADirect also offers a line of silent desktop configurations , all of which are available now.
