Ok, as I manage some thin clients that have both local drive and local audio I 
think I am qualified to respond  to this one. 
You can get audio on a thin client. GNOME appears to pick up on the fact that 
you're on a remote system and redirect audio automagicly.
LTSP supports local drives as well. it's a little more complicated to setup. 
but not horribly so. and it's getting better
GLX is supported, but you're not going to be getting the proprietary NVIDIA or 
ATi drivers installed without some trouble, but if you want quiet, you're 
gonna be  going for older stuff anyway. here's a link to my website on all 
things ltsp. give it a look before you go writing stuff off as impossible.
