My apologies I am very grateful for all the advice and help on this forum. I just get a bit frustrated as I am sure others when something doesn't go correctly. I have OSX via Virtual Box and I think I need to re-install version 10.8.1 in order to try the drivers.

      I have a Hackintosh with a 5820k i7 and have the adobe creative suite which I mostly use Premiere Pro and Photoshop. I had a radeon R9 280x 3gb but it wouldn't work so I had to get a 1gb card temporarily, but want to get an EVGA GTX card but I don't know what works best. Id like a 2gb card that I can later use with a 4k monitor in the future. 
      Any thoughts?

      So essentially, after many years I finally got enough new parts to build a new PC with a Quad Core CPU. I previously had a Core 2 Duo w/ a MSI 975x Platinum Power-Up Edition Board that I had successfully installed 10.4, 10.5,10.6, and 10.8. While using another hard drive to run windows.
       
      Now I have:
       
      ASUS Sabertooth P67 (rev 3.1)
      Core i5 3570k
      AMD Radeon HD 6970
       
      I've come to learn that the Radeon HD 6790 is essentially not compatible with any Mac OS, which I can learn to live with. I was at least able to install a distro of Mavericks and boot into safe mode for now. 
       
      My random thought was this.. I have an older Radeon HD 4670 now laying around without a home. Could I put both in the PC and then just disable the card depending on the OS? IE. Use the newer card in windows 8 or Windows 7 on the one hard drive, and then run Mac OS and have it disable the newer incompatible card?
       
      I tried plugging it in for kicks and giggles and was at least still able to boot in safe mode, but I don't see an easy way of disabling the problematic card short of removing it every time i want to use Mac Os which doesn't really sound great long term. 
       
      Any thoughts or suggestions? I plan on getting rid of the distro and installing as vanilla as possible again If i can find some sort of solution for the graphics card.
       
      The only posts I found for disabling a graphics chip were from mac pro owners with the lemon units.

      Gigabit GA-G31M-ES2C, Q6400 along with NVidia 8800GT, installed Maverick - everything functioning flawlessly until few days ago when the card gave up.
       
      I change the 8800Gt with an old Quadro Fx1700 and now the graphics are choppy. The systems will boot up, but window movements have lag and the HD video playback will freeze the system.
       
      NVEnabler.kext - throws an error message.
       
      GraphcsEnabler=Yes
       
      Is there any solution that I can take benefit of.

      for use with the Apple 27" LED Cinema Display (A1316 MC007LL/A) 2560 x 1440 which only has ONE cable with a mini DisplayPort plug, in now Mountain Lion and later Mavericks.

      $250 for Apple's ATI Radeon HD 5770 Graphics Upgrade Kit for Mac Pro MC742ZMA is too much for me.

      Usage: heavy Adobe graphics/ video mix (Photoshop/ InDesign/ Illustrator/ Premiere/ Dreamweaver), all open at the same time .. Final Cut Pro will follow later.

      Apart from that, here's what the card also needs to be able to deliver in 10.8.5 (and best 10.9):
          dual-monitor: connect a 2nd one via DVI or HDMI     live resolution switching on both monitors w/o black or blue screens     fully working wake from monitor sleep AND wake from MacOS sleep on BOTH monitors w/o black or blue screens     ATY framebuffer negotiated correctly between the card and OS X     cooling fan(s) not too loud if possible Sharing of best your personal experience or otherwise links or pointers would be very welcomed

      Thank you,
      Bugs
