Hardware Specifications;
-Asus H61M-K
-3.29 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i3
-KINGSTON SUV400S37240G SSD
-Kingston DDR3 1600MHz 8GB x2
-NVIDIA GeForce GT 710

Firstly, I made a Catalina USB installer using UniBeast with UEFI boot mode. Didn't check both AMD and Nvidia Graphics Inject Option.
Then, boot up the USB installer and proceed installation with on-screen instructions.
When Mac OS installation finished, I boot up from my SSD with the help of UniBeast USB, it worked.But graphics is showing 6MB and also no audio device found.
Mount the EFI folder from UniBeast USB drive and copy the EFI folder to the Mac OS installed SSD EFI drive. Also added the AppleALC,USBInjectAll,Lilu,Whatevergreen,RealtekRTL8111,VirtualSMC,AHCI_Intel_Generic_SATA kext to the EFI>Clover>Kext>Other. Some kext are already existed in EFI partition of UniBeast USB.
Restart the PC.
When the PC boot up to clover, I delete the "nv_disable=1". Then, my Nvidia Graphics and Realtek Audio Worked. All USB working.

I think I doesn't have knowledge about Mac OS so didn't find any issues on my budget Hackintosh.
Check my build.
