Any idea why my pc is shrieking?

Listen to the video, that weird digital noise it's making in starts and stops usually is going constantly when I try to do anything that isn't browsing the web. The starts and stops are when I am just browsing the web. It used to only happen once in a while, but it's gotten so bad now.

Apparently it's something called coil whine

Looks like the only thing I can do is replace the PSU that is emitting from.
