Default Loud Computer Noise

Recently, I upgraded my graphic card. From FX5200 to 6600GT. And I got a new Power Supply. The power suply i got was 450watt Ultra neon (which was about 40 dollars).
And my computer noise has increased enormously. Has the system noise been increased because the power supply is not of good quality?

And if i get a better power supply, will the noise level drop?

I'm pretty sure it's the Power Supply.

Ultra Power Supplies are cheap to begin with, you bought a $40 one. Even if the PSU isn't the noise problem, I'd replace your PSU anyways.

Ok thanks, Do you have any suggestion to which brand to get?
And how do I make sure they are "Silence", Since this Ultra garabage put "Silence Noise!" on thier packaging =/
