After two horrible days trying to set up my hackintosh, I'm finally almost done, but still confused about my GPU.

I'm running Yosemite 10.10.5 and I used this *kext to make my Sapphire HD 6770 work.
But it is detected as HD 5000:

Question: Will there be any performance improvement if I fake ID it to show 6770? not really willing to do it, since I'm new to "hackintoshing" and afraid of kernel panics, but if I get improved performance, I will fight my fears :)
