Yes, it's called "noise".
Often, for workstations from other vendors (HP, etc) the liquid cooling option has something like quiet or silent in the name.
And I also hope that the cooling systems on the quad G5s are reliable.
geeks.com had refurb macpros for well under $1k not too long ago, they were first gen (not 64 bit efi, AFAIK). If you want a good price from a "real store" they are pretty good.
