You need a Snow Leopard supported gfx card to install SL to begin with and put your 660Ti in after you install Mavericks. have you looked in the user builds / golden builds forums for similar hardware or used the forum search to find other builds using your board and CPU?...

You don't say but from description you have OS X and Win7 on same SSD? Boot the Win8.1 installer and select upgrade instead of install and select your Win7 partition.
