My latest project:

It's a low-power, silent, home server. It will serve my website and a couple of game servers. It's running FreeBSD and lighttpd. I put it together using these parts:
[list][li]Motherboard/CPU/GPU: Asus E35M1-I Deluxe - It's a Mini-ITX motherboard with an integrated dual-core AMD E-350 APU (CPU and GPU in one) running at 1.6 GHz. It's low-power and made for passive cooling. Has features (which are useless to me) like USB 3.0, 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. Built-in SATA 3.0 controller.[/li]
[li]2x4GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1333MHz RAM - This as much and as fast memory as the motherboard supports.[/li]
[li]Antec ISK300-65 Mini-ITX case - Case with room for 2 2.5" drives and a slim optical drive and comes with a 65W fan-less power supply[/li]
[li]OCZ Vertex 3 Series SATA III 2,5" SSD - 120GB Max Iops - Max read 550MB/s write 500MB/s[/li]
[li]2x Enermax CLUSTER UCCL8 80mm case fan - These turned out to be louder than claimed in reviews, so I'm ordering new fans to replace these. Because the computer is extremely low-power I can run these at minimum speed.[/li][/list]

It's never silent if it has mechanical parts.

It's not completely silent, it's relatively silent.

Looking good!
What sort of game servers are you considering?

Other than the Half-Life server I might start a modded server for the original Call of Duty. But it's a lot of work and I haven't made up my mind yet.
