However, when I tried a restart, the screen went black again. My computer keeps trying to start up while plugged into the 560ti. It defaults to that particular card for primary display.
Do you think hitting the CMOS button again could fix it?

Have you gone in the nvidia control panel? I am only on 1 card so I cannot double check this but I would think there is a way for you to make your 670 the primary adapter. If you get the 670 to work before restarting did you test it out with any games/programs?

I apologize for my ignorance, but what would be the best way to do that? Should I take the 560ti out first? Do I hit the button while the computer is running?

Remove GTX560 and install GTX670.
Then turn your PSU switch to off position, and press clear CMOS. Turn PSU on and try to boot.

Alternatively, try to remove the battery and short the contacts with a screwdriver or something.

Okay, I turned off the computer, flipped the switch off, hit the button, took out the battery, replace the battery, flipped the switch back on--all while only the 670 was in the computer. I hit the power button, only to be met by the D6 error (no console output device found). I tried again, this time hitting the Clear CMOS button while the computer was on. This time, I was met with the EVGA FTW logo. At the bottom of the screen, it says, "CMOS checksun error, press to run setup, to load default value." When I push F1, I hear a beep and then nothing happens. When I restart and push F2, same thing. In both cases, pressing buttons doesn't have an effect.

Alright, I reinstalled the 560 solo. I'm working on getting everything back to where it was. I think I'm going to call it a night and work on it some more tomorrow after work. Thank you guys SO MUCH for all of your help. I really appreciate it.

After a few more days of tinkering, I finally got her to work. Thank you guys for all of your help!

SOLUTION: I installed the card in the PCI-e slot closest to the CPU and now it works. I tried two other 16x/8x slots without any luck, so I didn't think that top slot would make any difference. From what I understand, some EVGA mobos force users to use that top slot with stronger GPUs. I don't understand the why, but I'm thrilled that it's working. I hope this helps someone with a similar issue!

Victory! Honestly I did not know what else to tell you, glad you got it solved. It is annoying when you have some sweet hardware you just bought, and only if you could solve the problem you could use it.
