I just build a system based off of the CustoMac Pro buyer's guide for September 2017. After I installed the OS, the graphics appeared fine, but after running multibeast, I see constant flickering and graphical glitches. Furthermore, when I try to download Final Cut Pro X I get a "Your computer's video card does not meet minimum system requirements" message.

It seems as though my graphics acceleration is not working. Is there an extra step I'm missing?

Edit: Tried installing Nvidia web driver, bootloader with emulated NVRAM, and adding <key>NvidiaWeb</key><true/> to config.plist. Basically throwing spaghetti at the wall, but nothing has stuck.

make sure your iGPU is disabled in the BIOS and you have Lilu and NvidiaGraphicsFixUp kext also either in /Library/Extension (Install it via KextBeast) or in Efi>Clover>Kext>Other or 10.12 folder.

BIOS - Disable Integrated graphics - Set PEG as Primary
Use a digital connection - DVI or HDMI - VGA is not supported.
Boot with nv_disable=1
May need to update Clover
Install web drivers
Update web drivers to ensure that you have the correct version.
Config.plist - Do not inject Intel or Nvidia graphics and no ig-platform-id
Config.plist - Disable SIP fully - CsrActiveConfig 0x67
Edit config.plist - NvidiaWeb = true as per Link
May need to emulate native NVRAM - Problem 6
Remove nv_disable=1 from config.plist
May need to install Lilu.kext , LiluFriend and NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext

Potential Problems :
HDMI 2.0 is not supported - Use HDMI 1.4 (or lower)
If your graphics card has more than one output of the type that you are using then try another one.

umran23 and P1lGRIM: I did everything both of you said, and now it works! I'm not sure specifically what did it

I tried all the steps you recommended and still unable to get my computer to use NVIDIA's web driver despite these steps. Also have a GTX 1060.

I have GTX1060 and seem to be ok using the web drivers, however, I do not get acceleration or 60Hz output.

I am running 10.13

Have followed the above steps and am using Lilu 1.2

If I install CoreDisplayFixup 1.3, I get blackscreen but 60Hz options - still no acceleration though

Any thoughts?
