Are we just stuck here now? Nvidia doesn't seem to care whatsoever about drivers for High Sierra. I have a couple of R9 290 GPUs to replace my GTX 970s. Anyone know if I can get full 6 monitor support on these R9s? I am really desperate to get a fast and snappy hackintosh.
You probably need to install WhateverGreen.kext to make it work. I only have experience with RX 580 and Vega cards, which work out of the box perfectly. If you can't get the R9 290 to work, I would definitely go the RX 580/Vega route. If you are using a iMac Pro SMBIOS, I would suggest using a RX Vega card. For a Mac Pro 5,1 SMBIOS, a RX 580 will work fine and can be bought used relatively cheap since miners are unloading them.
But yes, I used to run a GTX 1070 and the recent web drivers when I used 10.3.3 was the last straw for me, which led me to replace a GTX 1070 with a RX 580 and eventually a Vega 56.
