I have no numbers or benchmarks, but my search for a quiet but powerful 
set of nodes led me to buy Dell Optiplex SX270s.  They've got the Intel 
865G chipset (800MHz FSB, 400MHz dual channel memory), P4 HT up to 3.2GHz, 
onboard e1000, laptop-style HDD, a 150W power supply, and little else.  
They're sweet little systems.
