I can confirm that it is not memory related as swapping them around did not solve the issue. As well, swapping back to my old card did not have the problem so I tried re-seating the 290 again and am still getting the same screen. The Gigabyte TouchBIOS screen is what is supposed to be displayed, looks similar to this:
This screenshot is not of my setup, found it on google images since I have the 290 in again and can’t see the display. This is where I’d press delete to enter the BIOS configuration. Once this screen is done, the text screen that displays my drives shows up fine before loading me into windows.
