Noticed this box in a thread on Silent PC Review
Features: VIA C3 800MHz, mobo w/ 1 PCI, case w/ 4 drive bays, 165 W PSU. On-board VIA UniChrome 2D/3D & audio. Sockets for 2 184-pin DDR DIMMS. Case is only 7.1" x 10.8" x 11.8".
User reviews on Newegg indicate that it runs quite a number of Linux distros (including Knoppix) and can boot USB pen drives. Yes, there is USB 2.0. Uses well-supported VIA CLE266 northbridge & VT8237_CD southbridge.
User reviews praise the reliability & quiet. Best part is the price. US$103 (plus shipping) includes processor, mobo with video/audio/etc., case, PSU, CDROM, and floppy. Add memory, HD (if desired, ATA/SATA), KB, mouse, display.
Seems like a natural for DSL fans. Cheap, quiet, appropriate. Anyone have any experience with it?

No, I really don't work for Newegg or Asus...
