I currently have this setup;

i5 2500k OC @ 4.4GHz
4GB DDR3 RAM @1666MHz
MSI GTX 560Ti Hawk
650w Powercool 80+ PSU

Just incase, I want to upgrade my PSU. One question though, is it possible that my current PSU would have caused any damage to any other of my components? The only problem I've came across is that when playing a certain game, which isn't demanding, I can hear a high pitched noise, although, it does not sound like it is originating from the PSU.

I have run MSI Kombustor and 3D Mark 11 and not heard this noise which leads me to believe that this noise is particular to this game and not when my system is under more notable stress.

UK suggestions for a new PSU?

sounds like a fan from what you describe try to recreate the noise with the side panel off to locate the noise.

could be the psu

or could be something else

try taking the side off like dirtyferret said and see if by listening if you can narrow down the area producing the noise

try disconnecting case fans to see if it stops

try removing graphics card to see if it stops

check no dust in cpu fan
