I thinking also to buy Radeon, but first of all I should to sell Nvidia:)
regarding: kernel flag -wegnoegpu, where exactly to put it, I tried on to put into "custom flags" but Nvidia still on and also I see it under System Reporting:

Kernel flags are placed in config.plist/Boot/Arguments.

is kernel flag -wegnoegupu or kernel flag -wegnoegpu -this is a pressure fault or?

it's ok like this:
<dict>
<key>Arguments</key>
<string>kernel flag dart=0 darkwake=no -wegnoegpu</string>
<key>Debug</key>
<false/>

The flag is documented in the WhateverGreen README on github.

And you should be using a plist editor such as Xcode or PlistEdit Pro to edit your config.plist, never a text editor.

This from WhateverGreen README: -wegnoegpu to disable external GPU (or add 'disable-external-gpu' property to IGPU).

yeah I use PlistEdit Pro, but I doubt that I've done it correctly, could please show me how it should look like exactly?
thanks
