Moriendor beat me to it; get a good 16:10 monitor. I bought a 16:9 this last go-around since it was (and still is) tough to find a good 16:10, and I regret it.

Noise-wise, your two main culprits are the CPU and GPU fans (if water cooling is out of the question). Get a wide case that can hold a 120mm cpu fan/heatsink; larger fan=low rpm=low noise. Getting a low-noise GPU, on the other hand, is a trickier matter; best to read reviews for the specific make/model of the card you're interested in. Silent PC can be good at times.
