OK, so this question has been asked in some different forms on the forum, but none have in the way I need them to. So I currently have a Mid 2011 iMac, with a Thunderbolt 1 port. I want to know if I buy a mobo with thunderbolt 3, will it connect as a second display? Yeah, yeah, I know it will use the onboard graphics, but I would be using that 2nd monitor for school mainly. Apple's documentation says that I can use a Thunderbolt 3 to 2 adapter to connect a Mac with Thunderbolt 3, but do hackintoshes fall into this category? As reference, I attached my iMac's specs in case it helps.

I'd love to know if anyone was able to get this to work. Would love to use my XPS 15 9560 (running Mojave) Thunderbold 3 port with an adapter to extend display onto my 2011 iMac with Target Display Mode... So far no luck...
