    Recently bought a XXX 4890 XXX Edition.

    Whenever i ramp it up in an intense game – it buzz’s quite loud. For example, on Crysis it’ll buzz quite loud at start up / menus and then quiet down a bit after couple of minutes in game.. But it’s still slightly there. If i turn off vertical sync in CS Source (so obviously FPS goes to max) it'll start then to.

    I’ve googled the hell out of the issue – most saying it’s a common occurrence (on both ATi and Nvidia cards).. But not an actual problem. Opinions vary on a solution.. From people getting replacements and it being fine, to most getting replacements and completely different cards and still having the problem. Some also say it could be a PSU problem, with some saying a more sufficient one would solve the problem.

    I’d like people’s opinions on here..

    1) Should i return for a replacement (Doesn’t seem much point if it’s a common occurrence and not damaging anything)

    2) Should i purchase a high wattage PSU

    3) Do nothing.

    Setup:
    - i7 920
    - 6gb corsair dominator DDR3
    - MSI x58 Pro
    - 2x 1TB WD HDDs (I tried unplugged one to see if it happens, to lower power consumption. Same thing occurred)
