Debating options...Since Pascal is not yet supported in High Sierra, is there another choice that is relatively simple/compatible?

For example, could I buy a Radeon card and have it live along side my 1080Ti? Can the 1080 be disabled so that it works in Windows but not Hackintosh with High Sierra? I like that AMD runs FCX better.

Or could discreet graphics work? Any other ideas?

Just wondering what I could do to get running in High Sierra without waiting months for Pascal Drivers.

Here's my 2 cents:

* My hackintosh perfectly runs at 2560x1440@60fps HiDPI with a Gigabyte Radeon RX 560 Gaming OC 2GB GDDR5 via DP. I didn't manage to make Sleep/Wake work however.
* The integrated I7-7700's Intel 630 graphics card also properly runs at 60fps but it cannot handle resolutions higher than 1080p HiDPI. Note that Sleep/Wake is known not to work.
* Before switching to AMD/High Sierra, I was also running a Geforce 1050 TI but caused random system freezes so I replaced it with the Radeon (also for High Sierra compatibility)

Do You believe that my Thermaltake Hamburg 530Watt power supply is enough?
I do not need overclock.
Thank you
