It’s showing Intel UHD Graphics 630 31 MB even though I set dtvm to 128 and everything is slow and has some glitches. Is there a way to have macOS understand it has 128mb?

sorry for all these questions, but research is complicated in my current situation. I appreciate your help.
may help:

@Stork @CaseySJ @Feartech I found a store nearby that has the RX550 in stock. Do you think I'd need to change anything in config.plist for that one to work? I guess my only concern would be the framebuffer since the RX580 is 256bits and the RX550 is 128. I'm heading there in less than 2 hours. If you can, please let me know your thoughts. I'm also researching about it.

The RX550 is plug and play. No changes needed in config.plist.

@CaseySJ I just came back from the store. It's working! I was just robbed, sorry I meant just purchased the RX550 for 30% more than what I paid for the RX580 in 2019. Both stores I called were amazed that the RX580 was dead in such a short time being that I don't play games nor do I use it for mining, only for video output... I guess I'm just "lucky".

Anyway, I'm very happy I have my computer back and can finally work again. The only problem is that my secondary monitor is purple. But I remember reading something about that and will look for a fix. Thank you all for your help during these distressing times!

EDIT: Fixed it the easiest way, instead of changing the config.plist I switched my DVI/HDMI cable for a VGA one. Since the secondary monitor is only 1080p that won't be an issue. And it is 1999 again!

Why did you post in this thread your success with Monterey considering your system is AMD based and my system is Intel based?

Hi to everyone,
leave here an info for who need to know if upgrade this configuration to 12.3 is safe.
My system is a little different by the original in this thread, but everything is not influencing, until now.
Updated with EFI that is not different by last used to get Monterey 12.0.1.
In that EFI Clover is updated to last (5146) and ALC+Lilu+WTG are updated to last directly from Clover Configurator.
Update was smooth and fast with classics more than one reboots and until now (with some little tests) nothing is changed in available stuffs (but some important for my usage is :)).
If I discover something problematic I will inform here.
Bye
