    update the bios and see if that changes it.
    possibly upgrade to the 6 series or nvidia 5 series

    PCI-E 3.0 cards will just run at PCI-E 2.0 - same with almost all AMD boards / new GPUs combos

    GTX970/R9 290 would be my choice

    I did, just failed to post and pretty much gave up for the time being

    Fails to reach desktop. Often it would restart and bring me to the option to start in normal windows mode, safe mode, etc.

    I would definitively try a clean install if I were you.
