New SSD Won't Work With Current Graphics Card But Works With Others!

I bought a new SSD and for some reason the computer won't boot windows with my GTX 670 that's currently installed on my computer. I did a fresh install of windows 8.1 twice and it still doesn't work. But the SSD boots fine on my on board graphics card and my old 9800GT graphics card.

Does anyone know what the issue is?

  1. I've a hunch it may be PSU-related (ie not adequate enough to power a GTX 670). But that depends on your answer to the following question:

    Was your system okay with the GTX 670 before you decided to put a new SSD in it?

    Don't know then, unless the GTX 670 is faulty. Test it on another PC.
