GTX260 and working drivers

Hello,
I am kind of new in mac business but I think I am advanced user in computers technologies...
I am trying to get OS X working on my old machine its AMD (i know right lol) Phenom II X4 940, 4GB of RAM and at last point Gainward GTX260 896mb.
At the moment I am running Niresh`s Maverics successfully updated to 10.9.5 (13F34). I use MacPro3,1 in SMBios. OS X shows my graphics as Nvidia Chip Model 3MB
However, with my knowledge I am not able to get graphics acceleration working.
GraphicsEnabler=Yes won`t get my system started.
I installed the system only with /amd64 and the installation went fine.
But I keep getting that black / no signal error. 
Only thing how to get OS X load is to backup grafix kexts or use nv_disable=1.
So I downloaded nvidia web drivers and installed them with no problem at all, but it helped nothing... I changed to nvidia web driver in nvidia driver manager which also shows in ECC section no devices at any slot... Then I tried booting with nvda_drv=1 but it is all the same...
I know it is kinda odd - this combination AMD and 260 but I want to give it a shot and do not give up easily...
Thank you for all answers...

The output is, that OS X loaded in FullHD with my 260 loaded in Nvidia manager... But I am facing problem, that my computer freezes after while when I want to restart it...

I suppose just to add PCIRoot and Graphics enabler in chameleon wizard? I tried only 720p video, but lauchpad and effects are working great.

So, your graphics are working now? And indeed, you can select these options in Chameleon wizard. 

What do you mean with "computer freezes after a while when you want to restart it"?  Your computer is not restarting? Try the Restart Fix option in Chameleon.

Yes it is working like a charm, i tried PCIRootUID once before but it didn`t work either, but now it works so thank you very much.

Yeah, i click restart in system, the circle keep spinning for a while and then it freezes cant turn on num-lock or anything. I didn`t notice the restart fix, so i will try it. Last question, is it safe to update the chameleon bootloader just like that from wizard app from system?

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:
       https://github.com/xxx10101xxx/ThinkPad-X230-macOS/tree/master/i5-3320M

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
