    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.

    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?
