Hi, I'm new in this forum, and I built an Hackintosh 3 years ago following the site's guides. The Hackintosh is provided with:
- i7 7700k
- Nvidia 1080ti
- motherboard Asus Maximum Formula IX
- 16GB RAM
- 500Gb SSD.
- MacOS High Sierra.
I'd like to update to Catalina, but it would be impossible because I have an Nvidia GPU which is not supported.
I finally decided to buy an AMD Card and use it with MacOS, but at the same time I have a dualbooted Windows 10 system which I use to play videogames. So my purpose is to use the Nvidia Card on Windows and then switch to the AMD card when I boot MacOS, but I don't know how to do it and I didn't find any guides on the internet. Can you please give me an help ? Thank you

Why not use the AMD card for your games in Windows?

I have a 1080ti, I think it would be a waste to change the card. It will be perfect if I can disable the Nvidia Card when I turn on the Hackintosh and use only AMD

windows can have multiple cards plugged in so you should be fine running both of them
