PSU squealing after upgrading graphics card

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I upgraded my Graphics Card from a 6870 to a 780. When I push the card my Antec TruePower 650W PSU starts squealing very similar to this youtube video (not mine):
The sound is definitely coming from the PSU, not the video card (I pulled it out of the system to check). I have tried limiting the GPU power usage to 50% with MSI Afterburner and the sound is pretty much gone. The sound becomes louder as I bring the power back up to 100%.

I bought the PSU in 2012 for ~$80 from a Brick & Mortar store and don't remember the exact model.

Is the a sign of impending failure or just an annoyance. Should I purchase a new, more reliable PSU?
