Oh OK, good choice with the Phantom. If you can reuse your old HD definitely do so - but certainly consider upgrading the SSD to a 128GB Crucial M4 then: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I really don't like to spend $100+ on peripherals but if you want maybe try these:

If you are fine with a non-modular PSU then this is even better than the TX750 V2, especially in the quietness stakes:
Rosewill Capstone 750W 80Plus Gold $110
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The fan used in the TX750 V2 and TX750 M is a Yate Loon D14BH-12, which has a maximum fan speed of 2800RPM, altho it is probably only going to get up to 1800RPM on maximum load.
However the fan in the Capstone 750W is a Globe Fan RL4Z B1402512M, 0.30A which has a maximum speed of 1200RPM. However on maximum load it is only likely to reach 1000RPM.

IIRC the Corsair H80 and H100 have fans which have very high maximum speeds. I don't know what they are like when you put quiet fans on them either.
The Noctua NH-U9B has a fan speed range of 1000-1600RPM.
