Hi all,

I've finally managed to get my rig up and running again, thanks to folks on here. I've got the full-screen resolution but acceleration is a bit clunky on some apps and crashes on Logic Pro - doesn't work at all on Maps

So, given my challenges (i.e. mini-iTX case and Monterey), what would you recommend replacing the R7 250X card with?

You have not explained what your case is…
Assuming the challenge is to have a small dGPU, you may look for a Radeon Pro WX4100 or WX5100, both single slot. They are getting cheaper in the second-hand market.

But the "no cost and no space" option is the iGPU, as suggested by @Feartech.

WX4100 is half-height. Good luck finding one—but try your iGPU first!

(Note that WX2100, WX3100 and WX3200 are Lexa, and not supported.)
