Stuck on either logo spin or some install got to a Unix prompt shell like it wouldn't load grub. But keyboard and mouse would not respond.

you need kernel mode "nomodeset"

Making sure to boot the install media through legacy BIOS helped me get through some weird setup issues.

I did have my monitor hooked up through the on-board graphics with no cards installed. The card being present could be a problem for you.

From my understanding, the 270x is pulling 495 khash @ 227 watts on his system. The 265x is pulling 208W overclocked but only using 76 watts ( 132 from the system?). With those numbers, his 270x is only using 95 Watts.

From the info

270x 495 khash @ 95W = 5.2khash/W
265x 455 khash @76W = 5.98 khash/W

Well I was close but I give up for the night. I got using the nomodeset I was able to install xubuntu from a flash drive onto another USB flash and I was able to boot all the way in and start setting things up. I started installing packages I would need and then downloaded the newest Linux 64 bit binary nvidia driver since there is no package for it avail. I follows he instructions on how to install it from http://www.yourownlinux.com/2014/03/how-to-install-nvidia-334-21-graphics-driver-in-linux.html. But I ran into problems when I tried to restart the lightdm or starts GUI. My drivers are a total mess now. Ill have to clean it all out and start over.

This is dissapointing.
