I later upgraded to a Nvidia 980 Ti and used web drivers and that card has been working good as well. Now I have a new Hackintosh and I'm still using my 980...

    I've had this build for a few years and it was pretty solid in the beginning. Now the two main issues I'm having: Almost daily my onboard NIC will stop passing traffic. I resolve the issue with ifconfig en0 down/up and it's back to normal. I have also had issues with uploading files via web...
