Heat/noise issue.

I customised my first gaming desktop PC 1yr ago, and here it is:

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor (not OCed)
CPU Cooler: Stock cooler that comes together with the CPU
Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 Motherboard
Memory: Cosair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Hitachi 500GB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Storage: Intel 520 Series 180GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 570 4GB Video Card
Case: CM Elite 311 Plus
Power Supply: Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 550W
Optical Drive: Samsung 24X DVD writer SH-S243D
Use: gaming ( BF3, BO2, Dota2, SC2, Skyrim ), Surfing & watching movie.

I have no problem with this system until recently I noticed that the system generating high heat & noise.
I tried cleaning (airblow) inside the system, but no use.

Should I upgrade ( <$700 ) or just build a new system ( <$1500 ) to solve this?

    Listen to "Belial88" please..
    There is no need to buy a new system, when you have one like that.. Especially not when it's only a bit noisy....

    Like Belial88 already said:
    Just find out which fan is noisy, and try to find out why.. Mabye you need to repaste your CPU or maybe GPU.. Maybe one of your fans is broken or something.. but there is NO reason to buy a new system for 1500, if you can buy a new fan for 15
