Most people would answer this question with Addi Turbos, hands down. I don't really notice that much of a difference in speed though between my different needles.

My fastest needles are Knitpicks Options and they barely click at all (for me).

I'm afraid I'm not aware of a silencer for metal needles..sorry, they all seem to click. I will have to say that the fastest for me are knitpicks new Options needles. Then, there are the famous Addi Turbos. Both are metal with a nickle (it is nickle, isn't it?!) coating which makes them very slick, very fast.

I just like looking at my work better on straight needles. Circular needles bunch up.
