Just installed a clean Mojave on an external SSD. I decided to share with you how its GUI works.



My specs: Mac Pro 4,1-5,1 (2009) 2x Xeon X5690 96GB RAM 1333Mhz 1x Flashed EVGA SC GTX680 2GB (Slot1) 1x Apple LED Cinema Display 1920х1200

I have two MP5,1 with GTX 680s, never got this artefacts, just the ocasional black block in Finder file lists and rarely near the menu clock.

But in previous versions (Lion to High Sierra) no GUI issues present... :-/
Mojave now uses METAL to interface with the GPU, your GPU could have a problem with METAL unit and not with the OpenGL one.

Zotac 680 4Gb flashed and now problems in 10.4.2 or 10.4.3.

Also hooked upto a 24” LED Cinema Display via DisplayPort.

Would suspect that more likely your card rather then a generic thing with 680 cards.

Hmm. If it worked before but not now seems odd. Maybe do a vanilla install with the drive mounted internally just to check?
