The other day I installed a Nvidia EVGA GTX 1080 ti, after some finagling with the system definitions, the system recognized the card, however I'm stuck at a 1024x768 resolution. Is there a work around or just wait until Nvidia releases the web drivers to be released for Mojave?

You are running Mojave? If so you either have to wait until Nvidia releases web drivers for Mojave to fully support your card, or just use your old card (GTX 760), or just use CPU integrated graphics (HD4000) under Mojave.

I'm running Mojave, I'll probably switch to the intel graphics until the update is released as the windows side is already updated for the new card. Is it possible to Windows running off the card and Mojave running of the intergrated?

Or downgrade to High Sierra since nvidia web driver still works. There's not much difference between HS and Mojave.

Out of curiosity, why does Mojave work fine with my GTX 760 but not the GTX 1080 ti? Then again, the lack of a web driver for Mojave might be related to the reason why Preview couldn't open JPEGs with the 760 in. I still have my old hard drive with Yosemite installed, so I might just use that until the drivers are released.

The GTX 760 has native support in the OS, the GTX 1080 does not.

You will have to enable onboard internal graphics in BIOS and enable inject intel in Clover. Preview will work.

How would one go about downgrading to High Sierra without wiping the Hard Drive?

Unfortunately, you will have to back up everything and do a clean install of HS, use your onboard internal graphics or GTX 760 for the time being until nVidia web driver is released or buy a different video card that is native to macOS. FYI, it could be months or maybe a year before nVidia release the web driver for Mojave. It has been been almost 2 months and they have not released it so something tells me it's going to be a long wait.
