    I think a reasonable next test would be to see if my desktop starts up properly if i were to not have anything else on the same circuit using power, including lights and etc...

    Either that or i can move the computer to a different room and see if it acts any differently.

    Have a look at Reliability History and see if there are any red flags.If so,then view the Tech Details,which will give you a fairly comprehensive list of data,the most important found at the bottom.A common one is nvlddmkm.sys.

    There really aren't any things i see of other than the nvlddmkm.sys stopped responding and has recovered message often 2-3 times when my driver has crashed. That being said, thinking about the possibility of power issues i've been trying an alternative to the wait time, which is to use EVGA precision to reduce the power target to about 90-95% of the normal stock clocks. So far it's worked for about two startups. What this means, i am uncertain.

    Well about 4/4 on the stock clock reduction preventing driver crash. I've also noticed that my screen no longer flickers for a few seconds after starting up the pc while on the login screen.

    After a week or so without issues can for the most part consider solved. 5% clock speed drop from stock clocks on gpu via 3rd pt app seems to be the most reliable solution, although as for why it worked whether it is some problem with lack of power or a bad gpu remains to be seen.
