    There are reports that High Sierra is supporting RX 580 and Vega-56/64, all of which are expensive.

    The last Nvidia graphics card natively supported by macOS was the GTX 760 and some 770s with GDDR4 memory. The newer low end Nvidia 700 series (710-740) are repackaged 600s (610-640) which are supported Newer Nvidia cards require the Nvidia drivers.

    If you can get RX480/580 with good price go for them. Vega still is too buggy.

    Yes if you can get it with good price go for it, though as you are planning to use adobe apps you might want to consider nvidia products as well, in case you can't find 580 with good price you can look for 1060.

    Now i have Gtx 1080 .... for Adobe it is better to use Nvidia ? .... I was thinking about AMD so i can leave Web Nvidia driver for good ....
    Now i have 1080 GTX .... If Rx 580 will work good ...i prefer AMD so i can have native drivers...
    Your opinion ? Thanks. As i know Adobe use Cuda ( Nvidia ) ... but how works AMD on it ?

    I'd say if you already have 1080 you won't see that much difference using either one of them for adobe products, however if you were to use FCPX as I'm using I'd definitely say go for AMD.

    What's your issue with nvidia's web drivers?

    Thanks for reply, as you can see, I'm very noob with this theme.
    I downloaded lilu release 1.1.7 and Whatevergreen-master.

    I dropped it lilu release 1.1.7 (lilu.kext and lilu.kext.dsYm) and whatevergreen-master (folder). It's correctly?

    Edit 1: I put it as i wrote. And I Have black screen with 290X. Any suggest?

    You don't need that lilu.kext.dsYm file, delete it. delete that whatevergreen folder as well, instead download this and unzip it and drop it there.
