Making my loud pc, silent and upgraded

So I have had my computer for a few years, and its time I gave my computer a well overdue upgrade.

So here are the current specs;

OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz
Biostar A780L3L 760G Socket AM3
Zotac GTX 560Ti 1GB
Sumvision Pow erX2 700W PSU
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition

So its quite noisy, the fans in the case are already quiet, so its not these. It seems the noise is mainly coming from the PSU and CPU fan, which is the one that came with the CPU. So i was wondering whats the best for silence I can get out there?
Also should i upgrade my motherboard and CPU? The MOB was quite a cheap one, same with the RAM, which I want to increase the amount to 6GB or 8GB.

Just wondering whats the best upgrades for my set up? Im looking to spend a average amount, not too expensive, but not cheap.

Thanks loads!

Zotac GPU’s are reputedly loud…
What case are you using and will you be needing another Micro ATX if an upgrade in your mobo is necessary?

I did worry about the GPU, being a cheaper brand, can I remove the fan on it? As it looks kinda part of the card, being in a full case of a sort.

The case was a cheap one, i want to get a new case for sure, i wasnt sure if this impacts noise or not?
The case is called "Casecom Shiny Black Mid Tower Case"
