Below is what I built about 6 months ago. Playing Black ops I notice a lot of noise (buzzing like)coming from the computer. If Im overloading the video card would this cause that?

What would be the best and cheapest to update on this system?

The 550TI could play BlackOps easily. The buzzing noise could be from the power supply, fans etc.
