    Tighten the screw?

    If it was a cheap card, then it may have a lousy fan on it. Try putting the computer upright or flat.

    Also, make sure an errant cable isn't touching anything that might cause it to make a vibrating noise.

    A cable that isn't going where it should.

    As already mentioned, the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) fan may be failing...

    The video card could be failing, but it could be another fan, or as Mailpup says, a cable that is vibrating against the case wall or against the video card.... which is more likely than a video card fan vibrating and still working.

    Now, you do realise that nVidia doesn't make any video cards, right?
