Regional FlagGraphics card makes a weird noiseSource

Hey, was hoping you guys could help me out.
This Friday something weird started happening. When I log on, everything is fine until I select a character. As soon as I get in, my graphics card (GTX 670) starts making this weird noise and the screen starts acting weird. The strange thing is that when I downloaded League of Legends, just to see if the same thing would happen it did not. This confuses me a great deal. Is this a matter of hardware, software or is it something happening because of guild wars? I’ve tried different drivers for the graphics card but I still get the same result.
