Looking for great silent PSU

Man, researching PSUs is a big nightmare. I had settled on an EVGA SuperNova G2 750W PSU for my build. Problem is it seems to be out of stock everywhere. Now I'm trying to find something else that is great as well as silent but I don't seem to be getting anywhere. So I think I could use some help from the experts here. Anyone have some recommendations? Thanks much.

Here's my build:

This is what I plan to reference when I need to replace my power supply in the future:

tldr: Anything with a Seasonic or Super Flower OEM is going to be a quality product.

If you want complete silence, this will do just fine for your build. 750W is ridiculously overkill for your wattage load.

If you didn't quite mean literal silence, and would like more wattage, this is a very efficient and extremely quiet PSU. Highly recommended by me.

460 watts is way too small for a GTX 970, it would be over 100% load under the gpu is under heavy load, it would use around 490 watts under heavy load.
