Noisy psu

Hello,
i build a custom machine recently & made a bad choice with psu. its an i7 2600k rig with maximus iv-z mobo & an asus gtx 560 ti(min req 500w) gfx card..
The problem is with the psu "cooler master extreme power plus 700w" it's fan revs up like hell when running heavy games like battlefield 3 (completely silent when idling though). Also note that its a bottom mounted one.
i plan to switch to a better psu. what would be a better choice for my rig? without burning too much cash?

    really appreciate your help man, could you recommend some modular psu's as well?
    current wiring is quiet messy..& i don't really need a 700w psu ,but should meet my requirement & preferably less noisy as well.
