I just installed Mavericks successfully on my computer and I realized how crappy the graphics performance is.

 

 

I had a PNY GeForce GT210 and I really found that the Genie Effect would lag a little and I figured it was because this graphics is {censored}

 

I bought this one because it is really good

It is the Radeon HD 7870, and I also bought an SSD with it.

 

 

Is it compatible with Mavericks using the myHack install USB? When I installed using my previous graphics card it automatically installed the kext/driver for it

IF YES, WILL IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN HOW FAST THE GENIE EFFECT IS? IT LAGS SOMETIMES WITH MY CURRENT GRAPHICS CARD

 

 

Will it work and install the driver automatically during installation? (I already use boot flags PCIRootUID=0 npci=0x2000 busratio=20 -f)

 

 

Here's the rest of my setup

 

AMD FX-6300 (using working modded kernel)

ASRock Extreme3 970

Toshiba HDD
(Kingston SSD, coming in soon for shipment)
