My System Specs

Default

If you want a passive or semi passive PSU like the Seasonic X series/Corsair AX series, you'll need to stretch your budget a bit. Those should definitely be quiet enough for you.
Some of the new Antec High Current series should fall under your price range, they aren't too loud, but I'm not sure what you would define as noisy. I personally don't find the Fractal fans to be that great in terms of noise.

Make sure the fans on your Coolit Eco aren't ramping up and causing the noise before dumping in a lot of money. It might even be one of your drives, I know those old Maxtors don't have great idle noise and the Black 1TBs have horrible seek noise.
