I bought a used 780ti card off a guy on Craigslist and swapped it out with the original card in my Hackintosh build-- GTX 560ti.

Originally was confronted by black screen after apple logo on boot. Restarted the machine using restart button and adjusted clover to set nv_disable=1. Boot from there and I had no graphics acceleration, etc. Was able to download the newest Nvidia drivers for Sierra. As of this writing the download was named "WebDriver-378.05.05.25f01.pkg" Installed this driver and restarted computer. In Clover, I selected only "Use Nvidia web drivers" and removed the checkmark for inject. This time, the OS booted properly and I was able to configure resolution for my 4k display and see accelerated graphics within the screensaver preferences panel, etc.

BTW- Due to input limitations on my display, I am only able to connect via HDMI and am only getting 30hz refresh at any significant resolutions with this single 780ti. Oh, well.
