I'd also suggest checking out silentpcreview.com. I understand where you're coming from - even my PC Power & Cooling 'Silencer' 750 sounds like a hair dryer under load.
From recent memory, the quiet PSU's I'd suggest would be the Corsair HX series (either 520W or 620W) which have been reviewed at jonnyguru.com, or a Seasonic S12
, chosen by Ockie in this thread
for their silence, and from what I understand, he's very happy with them. I'm sure Jonny's reviewed those also.
Good luck, and let us know how it goes!
