Give it a try and find out. I've never owned any card with a GK106 core.
Alright, will update once I get an SSD for Big Sur.
Might take a bit as I'm a jobless minor.
Yeah, these cards were my uncle's and he gave them to me since he was clearing stuff out.
I swapped them for the GTX 750 that was in there because I needed a DisplayPort connection.

Scrape together 22 dollars and you can buy a 120GB SSD these days.

Spend 10 dollars more and get 256GB of storage and faster read/write speeds.
Lexar SSDs are made by Crucial so quality control is very good.

I have a pair of Asus GTX 660's - https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/asus-gtx-660-directcu-ii.b1927

I found the graphics issues happened after macOS was installed, and most commonly when I used Safari.

Saying that I could run Mavericks, Yosemite and El Capitan with a GTX 660 without any graphics issues. It has only been since the release of macOS Sierra that the hacks containing these two cards had any graphics issues.

They were swapped out for a pair of XFX AMD HD7870's, which surprisingly have worked without any issues since High Sierra. The XFX cards are now in a pair of AMD FX hacks running Catalina.

Hi there.

No.

You might find it runs in unaccelerated, VESA mode but it will not be usable. More likely the system just will not boot.

Please check post #1 of this thread.
