Hi, so the situation is this. have 6-year-old build:

Motherboard: z77-mx-d3h
GPU: MSI GTX660 2GB
CPU: i5 35570k @ overclocked to 4.5ghz with water cooling.
RAM: 12GB DDr3
Some ssd's some hdd's
Run OS Sierra on Ultrawide 29' LG monitor.

I planning to upgrade my video card because I can't run high sierra on my gtx660 (video glitch issues...) :(

Searching for GPU which can be run flawlessly on OS Mojave. My rig is mainly used for music creation (Logic X), office stuff.

I consider spending ~200-250 euros on GPU. What could you recommend me?

Another strange question: can I run AMD GPU's on my z77 motherboard??

Your processor's integrated HD Graphics 4000 are supported.
Yes, you can use AMD graphics cards with your motherboard.

Thank you. But I need GPU for gaming also. I have on second ssd windows 10 installed.
I'm not sure what the RX580 by AMD costs where you are but that would work for macOS Mojave and gaming in Windows. If that is out of your budget range get a 570 instead. See the AMD Graphics section of the Buyer's Guide for brands to get.
