Windows 7: Suffering VGA fan with strange noises (video)

Suffering VGA fan with strange noises (video)

I'm using this old PC that can be seen in my profile, it's good for its purpose, but yesterday the VGA started to make some strange noises. I replaced the CPU fan just before it started (it is more powerful than the previous one was), cleaned the whole PC (even the VGA fan for sure), but it does these noises, sounds like it wants to start, but it can't, here you can hear it:

It was doing something similar before it (for around 2 days, nothing before that!), but not this often, and it wasn't that loud and annoying. I was thinking of the PSU it's also some old something, probably 350-400W, maybe because of the new CPU fan it can't get enough power? I'm gonna replace the whole thing probably in January, so I don't want to spend on it until then. Should I stick to the old CPU fan then? Thanks for any suggestions, have a nice day!

Well, it sounds very much like a wire or something is interfering with the fan's operation?
