    In my primary display options under SA config where i can select what GPU to select on board or discrete, i have options for IGFX, PEG & PCIe. Since my GTX 1070 sits in a PCIe slot, I assumed I had to select PCIe for enabling discrete GPU instead of IGFX. I don't know what exactly is PEG for.

    PEG stands for PCI Express Graphics. This might refer to the PCIe slot provided by the CPU PCIe lanes. PCIe would then refer to any other PCIe lanes such as those provided by the PCH. You should see a device called PEG in IORegistryExplorer.

    I'm getting an error when I try to install these drivers on 10.12.5 saying that the installer is not supported with the package.
    Anyone know of a workaround to this? A way to get the 10.12.4 installer? Or a way to manually install?

    @adrmgt Quadro is a waste of $$$ if you are using GPU renderes and CUDA.

    Thank you @cinematix ! What do you suggest me ? Titan Xp or Geforce GTX 1080 or other ? I'm using Vray, Modo, Keyshot and C4d.

    @adrmgt Depending on your budget I would recommend 2x [ore more] GTX 1080ti instead of one Titan Xp for GPU rendering in Vray RT. Everything it depends on what render engine are you using, by default Modo, Cinema 4D and Keyshot do not use GPU for render [at this time]. You will need to use extra rendering plugins for that like: Octane Renderer for C4D, Cycles for Cinema 4D, Vray RT for Cinema 4D, RedShift for C4D etc. The release R19 will incorporate AMD ProRenderer by default into C4D. It is a GPU rendering engine that uses OpenCL and runs on GPU. Also Modo is planning to integrate ProRenderer in the next release. You can read more here. For all those software above I would recommend using Windows. Before purchasing make a serious research if you rendering software leverage the GPU power or is only CPU based.
