    Just installed a GTX 760 into my Mac Pro. It works great. I am concerned about the absence of a boot screen because I have Windows 10 installed via bootcamp & will need to use it now & then for gaming.

    I don't want to find myself unable to boot into OS X. Is this avoidable just using the bootcamp app to boot back into OS X or am I in danger of being unable to boot into anything except Windows?

    Thoughts?

    You should be fine. Whilst it’s somewhat annoying you just have to trust that everytihng will be cool. Oh and keep an officially supported GPU around just in case.

    to boot in to windows go to
    system preferences -> startup disk -> chose windows click restart
    in widows just use the boot camp thing in system tray (in win 7)

    id keep the old GPU for luck just in case

    also if you want you can use bootchamp https://www.kainjow.com/ but i think it may not work in osx10.12 (think it works if you disable sip or something )
