Hi all,
I've got MacPro 4.1 and Sierra has updated itself (not to Hight Sierra) and now Nvidia driver seems to not work anymore. So I'm trying to find a GPU which would work on this setup and I could update Nvidia drivers and make my GTX970 work again.

I have tried GT120 but no luck there. Is there any basic/cheap GPU which would work with Sierra and hopefully with higher system versions so I can plug in my PC screen and update the drivers?? Any Radeon maybe?

Thanks!

Try booting in safe mode and then update the drivers.

Best used card: W7000 for $260
Cheapest new card: RX560 for $120
Best new card: Either WX7100 or Vega 64

Make sure the card does not have a thick backplate on it. I tried a Powercolor Red Dragon RX570 card with a thick backplate and it would not fit properly in the bottom slot.

Your GTX 970 should work once you get the nvidia web drives installed.
