comment Computer loop restarts on Windows loading
GPU heat spreaders in order to heat the solder to liquid point, so it reconnects, alternatively, if you don't have a heat gun believe it or not, a powerful hair drier will work to, but is not likely to complete liquefy the solder, just expand it enough so you can boot and keep running till it's shut down, figured I'd tack that on there, I plan to make a full POST debug how and repair guide on here eventually.

No problem, and a side note I forgot to mention, sometimes due to either age, where solder oxidizes after a while, or due to extreme heat, solder on components such as onboard graphics processors can crack, and cause the system not to post, simply using a method known as a reflow can fix the issue for anywheres from weeks, to a year. What a reflow is taking a heat gun, which is a over powered hair drier, and laying the system on it's side on a level surface, you can take the board out if you wish or leave it in, just remove any other hardware first, and blowing heat onto the.

comment How can I power my GTX 770?
I see, well from what you've posted all I can say is to purchase a couple of adapters to plug into the molex cables, aside from getting a different PSU with the required cables/plugs, which I would recommend doing eventually anyways.

comment Easiest way to replace preinstalled Windows 8 with new hard drive with Windows 7
As long as it's windows OS you're installing, you wont run into any issues UEFI would give you, or secureboot, but you can turn that off anyways if you had to, so you should be good.
