And now if I try to start it up with the 1070 hooked up and power supply on, my loading screen freezes even though I'm still hooked up to the motherboard. It was going pretty smoothly yesterday. I'm not understanding what happened today.

Coltlacey1,

To get this to work, first have 2 cables for both the internet/external GPU (my setup is 1 HDMI cable to internal GPU and 1 DVI cable for external GPU). Boot into windows with internal GPU and disable. Reboot Windows and once screen freezes at Windows logo screen swap video sources. You can use an HDMI cable for both internal/external gpu but you have to swap connections. Let me know if it helps.

My setup:

Alienware Alpha i7 edition with 16GB ram, 1 tb SSD, external GPU with Zotac 1070 GTX
