Default I want to buy a small compact PC

I want to buy a small and compact pc which is not big as desktop but it is similar to this and not expensive as that but maybe $200-300 will do. It also must have hard disk, ram, cpu and main components for a PC. OS not included. I want to make it as a server so it also needs a LAN card with it.

lol, who would pay that much for the Aopen, you could pay $30 more and get a Mac Mini which is way better than that thing. Twice the ram, dual-core processor, twice the harddrives space, haha...

Anyway. you have a choice of LOTS of motherboards, most of them have integrated processors. You can learn a lot more about it by visiting www.mini-itx.com

The Mac Mini is nice, because it's the size of most speaker systems. This makes much more desk space, and like General said, it's more powerful than some Acer/Aopen system.

Ok so heres what I want.

I want a computer which is compact like the one that is shown on the first post and I do not want a computer like a size of a desktop and the hard disk have to be silent and fan/no fan that is silent also. This computer will be used to host a server on that computer in my house so it can't be audible so my parents won't find out. Prices can vary but no more than $700-800 please.

EDIT: Also it could be the best if its availible in Hong Kong because I currently live there and don't want any shipping charges so if it could be bought in Hong Kong that would be another advantage for me.
