Hi all, I just got a GIGABYTE AORUS GTX 1070 Gaming Box for a very good price as it was at a shop display, anyways i didn't know that nvidia gpu's aren't working out of the box with macOS , i tried to set up purge-wrangler but when my mac switches to the dedicated AMD gpu built in the mac display goes off (  https://ibb.co/hcueqf  ), but when i load up windows via bootcamp everything seems to work just fine, anyways i would like to ask if i where to get a Sapphire AMD R9 NANO Mini-ITX and swap it with the 1070 would it work ?

Thank you for your help 

Matthew

When an "incompatible" card is in the egpu box, what happens when you force-power-on the PSU via the PWR_ON pin to ground of the 24pin power connector?

A little different from the current convo but would the new Zotac 2070 mini fit in an Aorus? (Link below.) The specs say 8.3 inches long and 5 inches high, which is right at the size of the box I think. Powerwise, it's a 170 watt so the box should be able to handle it (it can do up to 220 watt correct?) Currently running a few generations old 750 (non-TI) so looking to leap forward rather than just do a 1000 series.

@veriestvarlet The Zotac RTX 2070 mini is longer than the space available inside the Gaming Box.

Dang. Might still pick one up though and see how much physical modding will be needed and report back (whenever they come out.)

That's a good plan. The biggest hurdle is the vertically placed 24-pin power plug. I've seen mods that replaced this with a horizontal one. Gigabyte is also working on RTX Gaming Boxes.
