ASUS EEEbox comes to mind.

If you like bare-bones: search for "Advantech Single Board Computers".
They come without HDD, w/o power-supply and w/o case (it's not a "box"
per se), but there are powerful models available that meet your specs
and even with PS, HDD and case will be within in your budget.

I'm just setting up an installation using a PCM-9363D-S8A1E (Atom CPU
64bit, 1.8GHz, 2 cores [4 w/hyperthreading], 4 GB RAM) + USB2-Audio
Presonus 1818VSL: 8 channel audio I/O -- jackd runs stable at "-p64
-r48000 -n2" ~6ms round-trip latency with debian/wheezy's RT-kernel.

Firewire is rare these days. Besides: "MOTU is hostile towards Linux"
[] :)

How many channels do you need?
