Thanks.I have heard of people doing this but never tried it myself. If you are going to purchase another GPU, best to get an AMD GPU that will perform as well as or better than the nVidia quadro card you now have and swap the new for the old. OTOH, there are still nVidia GPUs that are supported - see Dortania listing. You might be able to find one that will be comparable to the M5000, but it is doubtful as Mac support for nVidia GPUs has always been several years out of date, never having the latest GPU by a version or two, e.g. support for K5000, but not for M5000. The M5000 will outperform the K5000 by a good deal.
One last question. My current Mac is running Catalina and I would like to restore my time-machine backup onto the new Hackintosh. However, since it'll be running High-Sierra I have doubts that it'll be able to restore the Catalina backup. Any suggestions or ideas?
FYI the main purpose of the Hackintosh is so that I can run Logic Pro X, because my current mac is simply too old, laggy, and doesn't support my big Logic sessions like it used to anymore. This is evident from the sessions crashing due to "system overload". I certainly hope that all the third-party plugins will be working on the Hackintosh.
