Freesound is one I've used before, with pretty excellent results:

I agree with the "pepper" comment below - personally, I can't stand when someone gets a little too SFX happy, and every little flash, frame push, etc... has some massive sound effect tied to it! All of a sudden, your nice little package about foie gras now sounds like "Transformers"... It really pulls you out of the story.

When I put in sound effects to go with transitions, I like to keep them relatively low in the mix... if the sound effect is noticeable, it's probably too loud! There is a region between "inaudible" and "completely noticeable", which is where a lot of these SFX belong....
