There is a buzzing noise coming from my headphones and my computer while playing games. It only makes the sound when i play games, and not when i'm on the internet or youtube. I noticed it a few weeks ago, and it is very hard to play games with it. I've read that it is the graphics card, but my whole rig is only a few months old. My graphics card is a Nividia geforce gtx 970. Any help or suggestions would be very appreciated.

well it is possible to be your gpu... also cpu... or as it was in my case hdd
try to eliminate as many sources as possible through tests.
What I would do is
1. See if it is driver/OS error
2. install HD Sentinel or something like that to test the hdd for errors
3. Run a memory test and stress test gpu to see if it crash
4. stress test cpu
5. See how the temps and voltage goes while playing games

See if it does it constantly on every game or only on some games. It might be game issue
Also it could be your audio

Okay, so I'll try those, but I've also noticed that that sound doesn't play through usb headphones, but still through the computer

What "games" are you talking about?
What is the list of equipment that is used? What is the configuration of the computer?

Playback devices then click the levels tab and mute the Microphone and line (Sorry if anything is wrong as I am using windows in dutch). it fixed the problem for me :)
