    Target the sound source. My casing also got sound and I found out, it's one of the fan. After changing it, so quiet again. If is the hard disk, change to ssd or maybe, your hard disk is faulty. There are a lot of things to silent your desktop, water cooling is one of the way. Heh heh!
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    Noise from computers are from moving parts. These moving parts includes:
    1) CPU fan
    2) PSU fan
    3) GPU fan
    4) Computer/case fan
    5) Spinning hard disk
    6) Spinning optical disk

    A little bit of googling will help you find the best parts to buy to have a silent system.

    Without purchasing anything, you can always underclock your system to reduce it's load, place your computer in a cool and well ventilated area, apply new thermal grease if your computer is old, and clean up dust bunnies in your computer.

    Another point is to avoid noise in the first place. Noise from fans should be targeted at the source: avoid heat.
    If you don't need high GPU performance (e.g. for games) then a graphics card with passive cooling is fully sufficient. Image processing is CPU work. Photoshop only uses the GPU for the speed up of interface components.
    SSD and HDD at 5200 rpm for data are more than sufficient for most workload. HDD with 5200rpm also produce less heat, which means less work for the casing fan.
    All fans have to be sensor driven, of course and as large as possible. 120mm is standard, some cases come already with 160mm fans.
    Last but not least, check the heat flow diagrams for cases. Check that no cabling is blocking the airflow or that airflow from different fans is blocking each other. CPU fans blowing upwards require a case opening on top.
    Some combinations of cases / PSU allow the hot air from PSU to leave by an extra opening at the back. That offloads the casing fans and keeps them more quiet.
