PC Specs:
Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z77-DS3H
CPU: Intel(R) Core™ i5-3570K
PSU: Corsair 750 watt
Video: AMD 7950
Ram: 2x 4gb Corsair Vengeance

So when I turned my pc on after dinner it came up with a picture of the motherboard with a few options and was unresponsive to key commands. I pressed the power button to shut it off and now it started up fine.

So I'm a total pc newb. My MacBook will fritz every once in a while and has been going strong for 4 years. So is this cause for concern? Is this a precursor to freezing every time I boot or do these things just happen sometimes?

Concern? Not really. It's basically just a BIOS error that lasted for a mere second, it happened to me a few times on my old PC. It's just like when your browser crashes, but its not a big deal.
