I recently built my new computer:
8800 GTS 640
Gigabyte DS3R motherboard
and Creative Xtreme Gamer (not fatal1ty)
Anyways, when I'm playing oblivion, whenever something graphically intense is on the screen (gpu being stressed), which in oblivion is often, there's this chirping noise coming from somewhere in my system. Funny enough, I thought this chirping was part of oblivion at first, because it sounds like a cricket. I can even hear it very
faintly when the case is open and im not playing a game. But it gets really loud when playing, depending on if something graphically intense is on screen (the more intense, the louder it is).
I think it's my video card, but im not sure and was hoping someone would be able to recognize the sound.
Here's a sound file of the noise (Note - I was moving the mic around trying to pick up the noise, so there are one or two muted thumps in the soundfile... don't play at earbursting volumes right away if you're wearing headphones):

Any ideas what it could be? It's really annoying!
