The bios was updated about a month ago so it is the newest.

I have a suspicion that the computer is freezing. Could this be the problem? When i put the old 550ti back in it kick starts no problem.

I agree.

But for now, until more clues are found I'd go back to what worked. The 660 is a bit of a power drain but in this case I usually don't check the PSU.

Go back to a working setup next.
