I'm going ahead with another GPU to troubleshoot the dual Titan Ridge issue, and seems the Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 is a good option.
Anyone using dual GPU's and have experience with how well Open Core handles it? The Buyer's Guide doesn't seem to really go into that.
I'd try it with the WX 8200 I have at first, but might have to let that card go and get something more stable/familiar. Thanks for any insight!
Oh, I just ordered a RX 580 as a backup and for testing, that'd be good for me to have on hand anyway.OpenCore is a bootloader and has nothing to do with dual GPUs.
Also not worth dual GPUs in general nowadays, just get 1 fast one within your budget. The highest end one is Radeon VII (Used one maybe?) and then 5700XT....better RDNA2 AMD cards are around the corner tho, within 30-60 days.

Maybe I had the wrong idea that I could use one for monitors to take the load off of my main GPU for video encoding? I'm trying to transcode as many frames per second as possible. I'm still learning, thanks for your help!
You nailed it! Resolve is exactly the software I use for transcoding. I had the dual D500's in the 2013 MacPro but this is my first Hackintosh and I haven't tried yet. Of course the D500s were 2 of the same and I didn't try to seperate for anything, but I heard another user say she has her 2 hackintosh GPUs specified for different tasks.That's not how GPU encoding works really.
And I don't know what software you're using?
Dual GPUs will take advantage of software that support it — such as Da Vinci Resolve. Afaik that's the only software that will take advantage of dual GPUs...maybe FCPX too?
