After some more searching on this problem, I took the step to reinstall the ATI RADEON HD 4870 and Drivers for it, then using DDU to uninstall the drivers with the old graphics card installed, reinstalled the new XFX AMD R7 360, the drivers, and in a different PCIE slot, while using a different PCIE power connector from my power supply. After installing the drivers, I rebooted and the problem persisted, however this time I was able to restart the computer using the button on the tower instead of having to hold down the power button to shut it off and was able to log on to my user with the new graphics card and drivers installed, however the problem is still present. It just wants to work after every other reboot it seems like.
We're sorry you are having issues with your new card. I dont see any obvious issues here. Having any existing legacy drivers in the system could cause an issue, but thats more the exception that the rule. try this step by step.
Tutorial for proper driver installation.
1-Load windows with only your primary graphics card plugged in.
2-Disable any and ALL anti-virus/malware protection.
3-Download and Run the 15.7 (or latest) drivers from AMD.com (Omega drivers do not have Uninstall built in, you have to do it through add/remove, which is okay)
4-Choose to Uninstall/express (may not be available in newest version, download an older version) the existing drivers, and AMD folder
5-Restart the computer.
6-Disable any and ALL anti-virus/malware protection.
7-Run the 15.7 drivers from AMD.com
8-Choose to Install/Express the drivers
9-Restart. Confirm settings are working in windows.
10-Shutdown and add 2nd/3rd cards for Xfire.
11-Respond to this ticket if you have any further questions
** If you have nvidia drivers on your computer, you might need to run the Uninstall feature of Nvidias driver as well.

Do you have any 3rd party software running in the background when windows loads that could interfere? antivirus or malware protection maybe? does the 4870 work everytime when its installed alone?
Sorry for the delay, im still learning how to search for XFX related content.
