@phrozenpenguin Got the PSU, adapter cable, and graphics card but haven't had the time to get it all installed and working, yet. Also ended up with a circle slash on boot that set me back a little. Finally figured out I needed to delete the prelinkedkernel and then rebuild my kext cache. So my...
Thanks for the advice. I should have the PSU, adapter cable, and RX 580 all by this weekend, so I'll let you know how it goes. I'll definitely be cloning my system drive before doing anything, just in case I mess something up and need to start over.
This 8300 has been rock solid on High Sierra...
I decided to take the plunge and try the PSU upgrade, so I would be able to upgrade graphics cards more easily now and in the future. Getting a Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580.
Hopefully, the upgrade goes off without a hitch.
Any advice on how/which order to update my GPU and OS? I'm currently using a...
Thanks for the link to that thread. Looks interesting. I'll have to decide if it makes more sense to spend extra on a new PSU plus an RX580 or go with the RX560 with 4 DP that doesn't need a PSU change. Decisions, decisions, lol :)
Thanks for the link to the card. I found a place that carries it for $240 -- which is about double I wanted to spend at the moment. I'll research the adapter and PSU upgrade. That might be my best bet. Thanks for the suggestion. My current setup is working well, but I'd like to move to Catalina...
I'm currently driving 2 4K monitors @ 60Hz via DisplayPort and 1 1080p@60Hz via HDMI with a GTX950. I'm on High Sierra and waiting to get an equivalent or better Radeon as a replacement so I can move up to newer versions of macOS. Unfortunately, because of the power supply constraints, it's hard...
Anyone know if there is an RX 560 with multiple DisplayPort outputs? I'm looking for something to drive 2 4K monitors on a stock 8300CMT system. I've considered the NVS 510, but I'd prefer something more recent so performance isn't compromised.
Next time you use this, I'm curious what the performance is like on a 4K display. Is there any lag or stuttering when bringing up Mission Control? That's the one thing I'm worried about with it. Thanks!
Wow, this is pretty sweet. Thanks for mentioning this. I've just been opening the case and disconnecting/reconnecting cables when I wanted to not into Windows. I'm definitely going to give this a try instead.
I bought an MSI Nvidia GTX 950 with 3 DP outputs back in 2016.
That exact card probably isn't what you'd want to buy now, but I can confirm that if you have multiple DP outputs that you should be able to drive multiple 4K displays.
I think there's an issue with some of the internal USB ports not working if the ports aren't renamed. I know the BT on my my pci-e wifi+bt card wasn't working until I did the rename. The BT on the card is powered via an internal USB cable that connects the card to a port on the motherboard.
Updated to 10.12.6 from El Cap through the Mac App Store. Everything worked great after I upgraded Clover (whoops!). No issues. No need to redo anything. The Nvidia app even prompted to update the driver to the correct version without me having to do anything.
