So these are the steps I took upgrading from my gtx 680:

1. Removed old card.
2. Installed new card.
3. Uninstalled old drivers using ddu.
4. Installed the new drivers.

So when I restarted my computer for things to take effect, the windows logo appears and the startup windows sound when it shows your login screen. However it's just a black screen, although I can see my mouse cursor. I did do load safe optimized or whatever in bios and that didn't do anything either.

I figured it out. I have an HDMI cable running from my receiver to my video card as well just in case I ever want to use my TV as a monitor. I unplugged it and it all worked out fine.
