I just installed High Sierra (upgrade from Sierra). Got both monitors and USB ports working on High Sierra. with the new install, (& Gforce GTX 660Ti), the graphics are flaky. I purchassed and installed a Radeon RX 580 and only one monitor works (second monitor is plugged into a display port).
I'm having trouble determining which kext files are needed.
Do I need to remove all the Nvidia kext files for the RX580 to work?
How do I get the second monitor to work?

Correct, i do not have Lilu or WhateverGreen.
I'm looking at the "iDiot's Guide to Lilu..." - looks like that install may solve many of my issues.
Clover version is not too old (don't have v-# just now). Clover displays gray Background when loading.

Suggest following:
Update Clover to vLatest.
Update to use WEG and Lilu.
...
thanks dclive,
please clarify a few things for me:
when I update clover does it retain the current kext files and commands?
- and so (assuming it retains old commands) will I still need to remove the old/previous nvidia kext files/commands (in config.plist and ../extensions)?
- do you recommend a clean install of Clover? that is completely remove my current config.plist?
- if i remove and replace .plist, is there a guide to do this? (brief summary of steps)

No. The Clover EFI and associated files distributed with Clover are updated.

- and so (assuming it retains old commands) will I still need to remove the old/previous nvidia kext files/commands (in config.plist and ../extensions)?

I wouldn't lose sleep over it, but yes, you should probably clean up the old nVidia stuff at some point.

- do you recommend a clean install of Clover? that is completely remove my current config.plist?

Heck no. I suggest doing what I wrote earlier. :)

- if i remove and replace .plist, is there a guide to do this? (brief summary of steps)

I wouldn't replace any of that. Just make the backup of the USB boot, test it, then do the three steps I listed.

TBD
I know it’s pretty much brand new but has anyone got an 5600XT up and running yet? I think I saw somewhere that it has the same PCI_ID as the 5700/XT so *should* work but I’m interested to have this confirmed.

The first post is very outdated. Will it get updated?

Will adding Lilu and WEG via multibeast enable HEVC? I just installed the RX 560
