Update: Now running Mojave! Thanks to mojave2core! Yeah Still using C2D in 2019!
Inserted a nice and cheap GT710 that is not relying on nVidias Webdrivers and runs OOB under Mojave.
Nice, seeing High Sierra running on this old but capable system! It rocks with a new ASUS GT1030
6 GB DDR2 RAM
Asus GT1030 2GB
Sandisk SSD 128GB
TP-Link AC1200 Wifi USB
Inateck KT4006 USB 3.0 PCIe (No boot)
Clover: 4297 4360
A good deal of DSDT editing was necessary to get this machine to boot High Sierra but finally it works flawlessly, even sleep and wake!
You NEED to have the DSDT put in place for installation because otherwise macOS doesn't recognize the SATA ports.
There are a few important BIOS settings: SATA hast to be set to AHCI and "native" and HPET has to be run "64-bit", I'd recommend to disable IDE and the serial and parallel port.
For the GT1030 nVidia Webdrivers are needed, have to boot with nv_disable=1 until you have them installed.
You have to install Clover in legacy mode because this old fella does not support UEFI.
Only downside: The so often recommended Inateck USB-card isn't recognized by BIOS, so you cannot boot from it. It works perfectly within macOS though, have the ac-Wifi connected to it.
Now have a Olarila app, just download app and clover folder for your Chipset!
Create a bootable copy of macOS Sierra
Check out the link
--Install Clover in USB stick UEFI mode
--Install System and boot with USB STICK!
--Install Clover in UEFI mode and replace with my folder
Mavericks / Yosemite
El Capitan / Sierra
CLOVER El Capitan-Sierra.zip
--Reboot and activate video!
Now you need a fine tune! I prefer DSDT way, apply all patches in one file, many people prefer many SSDTs or Clover patches!
If you need DSDT edit...
-Post your full Clover folder with original tables in Origin folder(Extract with F4 in Clover boot screen)
-Post Ioreg, extract with Ioreg Explorer
-Run it, post files generate in your desktop
-FIX ERRORS AND WARNINGS
Generate your SSDT Power Management, use ssdtPRGen Piker-Alpha
run in terminal
curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/Beta/ssdtPRGen.sh
chmod +x ~/ssdtPRGen.sh
Clear NVRAM, Purge and Kextcache

Credits and thanks to the old and new people in the community who developed patches, kexts and bootloaders!
Please help me with this 10.9.5 system. Motherboard: Gigabyte 965p-s3 rev3.3, gpu: Ati Radeon HD6450 (dvi/hdmi/vga).
Using any of the 3 ports on the 6450 (dvi, hdmi, vga), I see all the white letters on black background during boot but when they complete and it's time for the graphics to start I get a black screen and sometimes a restart after that. Using Clover 4411. Is there any way to get past this?
Could you please help me enable the VGA port on the GT710 in 10.9.5 13F34 ?
It is currently booting fine through its HDMI port, web driver 334.0103f01 and config.plist arguments checked: Verbose (-v), npci=0x2000, dart=0, nvda_drv=1
The nvidia GT710 works fine through its VGA port and web drivers on a friend's Mac Pro 3,1
I must soon return this borrowed HDMI monitor, mine only has a VGA port so I'd appreciate your input.
