My first step to check is if your GPU fan is the part that is ticking? If it is, I would advice getting a new fan or replacing the video card altogether.

Its the bearing (sp) on your fan or your fan is grinding against something to cause your the tick tick sound. Either take the fan out and clean it and put it back in or purchase a new fan or return the video card for a new one.
