My perfect build requires a house upgrade... but...
it all starts with a nice big bong cooler as an artistic water feature (using clear pvc pipe & probably some sort of aquarium for the reservoir, I'm thinking a seashell diorama or some other hanging feature inside the evaporation pipe). To cut down on maintenance we'll need some good design, dust filters for at least air inlet & probably outlet, a silver kill-coil, & an auto-refill valve fed by a reverse osmosis water purifier (one with two outlets so I can also use it for drinking water).
Ideally that part of the build will be isolated in the guest bedroom (or workout room), possibly with a NAS system. A few holes drilled in the wall will allow tubing into the room I have the computer. The whole point of that setup is to have kick-ass slightly sub-ambient temperatures for water-cooling, yet also have an art feature & a nearly silent computer system (all cooling noise eliminated by a big-ass wall).
The tower itself will have (most of the time) only ONE source of sound - the case fans themselves set to very low. Near silent.
That case will probably be a Fortress 02 with one of the three fans removed (sound dampening, I like the looks) or the Raven 03 (bigger, more modern design). Not sure on window. Why those two cases? Well, relatively quiet case fans & I like having the I/O panel on the top. Both cases will probably have to be modded (aka, take a drill or hacksaw to it) to allow watercooling tubing in & out.
PSU: Seasonic Platinum 1000w (not least because of the hybrid fanless feature - much of the time the fan on the PSU will be off.
DVD-burner: some Asus. Relatively quiet as DVD-burning brands go - but of course this potential third source of noise will usually not be used & thus silent.
SSD: 500gb, probably a Samsung 840 (no HDD, no case vibration or noise). Additional storage through nas.
Video Cards: 3x 7970 (silent because water-cooled. Also, overclocked to high heaven, because water-cooled).
Asus z77 workstation board (variety of reasons)
i7-3770k (obvious choice & water-cooled, so overclocked to high heaven. Probably too lazy to de-lid though)
Sound Card: Sound Blaster ZxR
Speakers: Creative T40
Headphones: Audio-Technica AD900
As for monitor setup - a little unusual, but probably a PLP 1200x1600, 2560x1600, 1200x1600 setup. Not an ideal eyefinity gaming setup (actually, can't run eyefinity at all - damn you AMD & Nvidia drivers), I admit, but I think this would actually be the best setup for me productivity-wise. Might go with massive big-monitor eyefinity though.

Noiseblocker e-loop fans throughout the case and on the radiators.
Customer watercooling system to keep this baby nice and cold. Not going to list what fittings, tubes because that's just ridiculous lol but definitely two radiators. Will have the GPU's, CPU, and memory watercooled.
