    General Information on Display Preferences

    Please note that VGA monitors are generally unsupported in modern versions of OS X. Exception to VGA monitors may be possible through a Discrete Graphics Card via an adapter.

    If you are using a TV or Monitor that can utilize a 1080p Display, Be sure to select 1080p Display, in MultiBeast, navigate to Customizations/Boot Options/select 1080p Display.(Or see How To Edit a .plist to edit your native screen resolution). This is especially true when booting using Ivy Bridge HD 4000/Haswell HD4600 graphics.

    The best option is to use a DVI connection or an HDMI connection, which can also provide native HDMI audio if this is required.

    Supported Graphics Cards in the Buyer's Guide require GraphicsEnabler=No.

    If you are not familiar with HDMI/DSDT editing for Audio then this is simplest guide to achieve HDMI audio along with alternative audio options without any editing. SeeML: UEFI HDMI audio, no dsdt edits With this option installed it is possible to to gain both internal and discrete graphics simultaneously with your choice of Audio.

    Please read the threads thoroughly to maximize results.
