My computer was built yesterday and for the first couple boots (maybe like 30) the computer came on properly, but now its taking like a minute to show the BIOS screen. Everything after that is perfectly fine, but why is it taking a minute or so to show up the BIOS screen? (Blank black screen/not turned on screen shows up first for a minute)

What PSU?

 

Probably on BIOS there are full initialization of serial ports and such, disable everything you don't need.

Hm... okay.
 

The PSU is something I bought locally that makes 600W

And I'm not really sure if power is the problem because I unplugged one of my graphics cards and ram and hard drive to test it out...

600W PSU with +12V rail 15A is crap without further question.

 

So buy something with better quality.

Does the system post properly?

 

Seems to me that the system may be having difficulty with the identification of attached components or the hard drive.  I would disconnect any USB devices attached and try to boot.  Let us know if that makes any difference.

 

If not, then I would run a hard drive diagnostic...to ensure myself that the drive is without problems.

 

If neither makes a difference, I would have to move on to other components.

Yes, the system POSTs properly. In fact, it does it in a couple seconds. But it takes so long to get to the POST stage... I tried unplugging all the USB components and it still is doing it....

I would remove the RAM modules...blow out the slots (ensuring that nothing is interfering with contact), then reinsert the RAM modules and see if situation changes.  If not, then I would guess PSU is the problem, as suggested by others.
