The RX 550 is fully compatible with Monterey.
Even if it's Lexa based ? All the documentation I've seen says that only Baffin versions have native support. They have 640 SP (shaders) instead of 512.

Here's what the specs for the Maxsun RX550 card say on Amazon:

Don't buy the Maxsun with 512 cores/shaders, they don't work natively. It's Lexa based. You would have to do some spoofing for it to work.

Some Sapphire models are Lexa based so make sure the one you buy has 640 SP then you know it's Baffin based.

OK I have looked the Dortania list for graphics cards and my choice will be Biostar Radeon RX 560 4 GB GDDR5, maybe will be better than 550. Thanks for the help @trs96 ;)

Please see this updated backup guide:
Casey I have always used SuperDuper. Its a superb app that has never failed me in over 15 years of using it. I haven't tried it with a Big Sur OS, but it works just as any other mac OS with Catalina. Might be worth trying out.

Hi,
I upgraded to OC 0.8.1 and now the Startup Disk is not remembered at startup anymore and OC defaults to an EFI partition (which does not start of course).
I was wandering what I should change of if there is a way to hide the EFI choices at startup

Try holding down CTRL key in OpenCore Boot Picker when clicking the macOS disk. That disk should become the default on next boot.
