I would say the PowerColor HD 6870 PCS+ 1 GB would be one of the quietest.
Here's a link to a decibel test by techPowerUp!
PowerColor HD 6870 PCS+ 1 GB Review - Page 26/31 | techPowerUp

Here are some other 6870s for reference

MSI Radeon HD 6870 HAWK 1 GB Review - Page 22/27 | techPowerUp
HIS Radeon HD 6870 Turbo 1 GB Review - Page 27/32 | techPowerUp
HIS Radeon HD 6870 1 GB Review - Page 28/33 | techPowerUp

When comparing dB ratings, you want to use the same website to compare. For example, website A may say X decibels, but that is not comparable to website B saying Y decibels.
Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.
