All my drivers/BIOS/Firmwares are at their current revisions as well. If you can test your setup with another nVidia-based card and see if you still have boot up issues then you will know if it is the card.
That just wouldnt be logical though. My system was running fine previously. I literally took out the WD vraptor and put the SSD in within an hour and after installing win7 and trying to load nvidia drivers, it just didnt boot up.
I dont know what the fuck the problem is, but the damn thing just cant get into windows after nvidia drivers are installed.

Is your BIOS up to date?
Are you installing the latest chipset drivers?
Are you installing the latest nvidia drivers?
Have all the Windows updates been installed before, or after the nvidia driver installation?
Its an intel i5-2500k, 8gb memory, Asus P8Z68-v lx mobo, msi gtx 650 video card. I am NOT using the latest mobo bios, so I am going to update that. I also do not have latest intel chipset drivers installed which I am also going to rectify shortly.
I have also changed from IDE to AHCI in bios for the SSD as well. Hopefully something here fixes this issue.
Ive already reformatted and installed win7 like 3 times.
