My guess is that the SSD is not properly configured in Bios, or that you have some kind of registry issue. This is just a bump post, so that the forum members with more SSD experience will see it.
I seriously doubt that your screaming fast 660ti is the source of your boot issue, unless there is a driver or config issue.
I don't think it's the SSD either, it's newer than the system itself, i bought it tuesday. Normal boot time was less than 10 seconds until i had to remove the graphic card ... I' going to diagnosis tomorrow ... Damn
