I need to replace the PSU on one of my desktop computers. The specs are as follows:

PSU – Antec TRUE 430 Watt Quiet Power Supply with Dual Smart Fans.
Motherboard IntelD875PBZLK Pentium 4 3.2GHz
Lite On DVD-ROM
Plextor DVD+/-RW (PX-708A)
SoundBlaster Audiby 2 ZS
Corsair XMS 2GB DDR 400
NVidia GeForce 6200 AGP
WD Caviar Blue 320 GB HD
Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 320 GB HD
Floppy Drive
Canapus ADVC 1394 card and bay
Zalman HSF
1 side case fan

I am looking for a PSU that is in the 480-500 watt range, and that is quieter than the Antec TRUE 430 Watt PSU. Any suggestions?

Considering the PSU you had before had 2 fans most newer PSUs use one larger fan to cut down on noise.
Here is a comparative list from Newegg:

Does anyone know how the Antec Neo Eco 520C compares to the Antec TRUE 430 in terms of noise level and compatibility with my system?

Everything seems quite to me, but I follow the the tree in the woods falling philosophy... no one hears it if no one is near... that or a ninja... :p

I'll put in a vote for the EarthWatts 500. I have a 430D and love it. My Noctua case fan is louder than the PSU fan.
