well that's definately a cheap PSU, and could use an upgrade regardless. But also double check which fan is really making the noise.

Here's a tip: sells awful power supplies most of time. A good power supply is going to set you back probably around $50.

I would open the case and listen to which fan is the loudest in the case.
