Edit-

Fixed it, the problem was that I thought i was being smart making a fusion drive, its not, i got multibeast to work when i partitioned the drive. so when i found that out I split the drives and did a clean install of mojave and then multibeast worked perfectly. the only issue i have now is that i cant seem to find out how to set up clover configurator for my hackintosh

My newest post in Deals of the Day:

TLDR: These LP cards can give you working graphics via DP in an SFF 6300 or 8300. Works great when you've got the i5-3470 which has unsupported HD2500 intel gfx.

So with all this talk about GPUs, i was going to get a RX560 put they shot so far up in price, someone else in this thread recommended the 550 instead, any one have decent benchmarks, how does it compare to a 1050Ti? any other SFF 8300 compatible cards for light gaming/video editing that would be an upgrade from my 1030?
