Strange, but Succesful Boot (Help Needed)

I finished my computer today and installed Norton 360 and Win7 Ultimate. The strange thing I noticed is that the computer will boot past the mobo screen (I have an AsRock Extreme3 Gen3) and then my screen will lag or something (the monitor will idle; nothing appears and the power on the monitor flashes). After about a minute or two, it loads to the Windows 7 login screen.

Does anyone have any idea why this may be? Any ideas on fixes? It's VERY strange. I don't want this becoming a bigger issue in the future.

A full run down of your system would help aka

video card
power supply unit

Just to see what it could be.

Here we are.

1. AsRock Gen3 Extereme3
2. i5-2500k (stock speed)
3. i5 Integrated Graphics
4. Antec 750W Gamer Series
5. GSkill 8GB DDR1600

EDIT: I tried rebooting the computer a couple different times. It seems to be totally random. Sometimes the screen will "turn off," but other times it goes straight to the Windows Login screen.
