Hi :wave: community friends.

I need help. I plan to upgrade my video card, but I do not know which brand is better for macOS. my budget is 140 dollars. I need your help to see what is better for me.

Which is better NVIDIA :think: AMD. I need help.

my system is: Z77A-41G MSI MOTHERBOARD. CPU i5 3570K WIHT WATER COOLER. PATRIOT DDR 3 1600 MHZ, GTX 560 1GB SC.

Thank you. :thumbup:

There are no web drivers for Nvidia cards yet for Mojave so if you want Mojave AMD works with Native drivers.

AMD RX 560 Gigabyte, MSI or Sapphire work well. Don’t get XFX RX 460-560.

Nvidia GTX 1050 will work in Sierra and High sierra with Web Drivers.

Both cards are in the $140 range.

Some good deals to be had out there on Vega 64 cards ...
Sapphire Vega 64 Nitro seems to be on offer at most places.

I just replaced my Nvidia GTX 980 Ti with Sapphire Vega 64 Liquid Cooled ... MacOS has never run so well ...

Cheers

Did you mean “run so well”?

Although I guess it could also be interpreted as never run well on Nvidia .... ;)

well Radeon RX 580 ARMOR I see all expensive more than 160. so I see in offer GTX 760, 750ti less 100.


for me at the time Nvidia is the winer. more to choice. gtx 760 4gb ram is good I think
