    It's been a long time since I upgraded my GPU and I want to upgrade mine to MSI RX 570 ARMOR OC Edition.

    Since MacOS support AMD gpu natively, I dont need to do anything but insert AMD GPU right away?

    In Mojave, no need to change anything.

    Just get a AMD RX570 and then plug in? That's it?

    Apple's official list is here: HT208898

    RX 570 'might' work (probably will), but why not just go for something that's on the 'definite' list? Also, you won't get boot screens unless it's a GTX680, HD7950 or Quadro K5000 ('for Mac' versions).

    I've been trying to sell my GTX 1060 6gb for a long time but nobody buy it. So now, Im trying to trade with RX 570 8gb. I dont expect have boot screens anyway. I already have HD7950 but it doesnt support Mojave. I just wanna know if I need to update or chage something in MacOS before I install RX 570.

    Sounds like you need to lower the price on the 1060. It's still a good, current card, so would definitely sell for a reasonable price.

    Why not just go for a second hand RX580 Pulse instead? They're only about £150, and are officially supported.

    The HD7950 supports Mojave just fine - check out my link. If yours is not a Mac Edition, it can be flashed easily enough (for boot screen support).

    In USA, RX 580 cost more than $200. I lowered the price for a while but nobody wanted to buy it.

    Strange, the GTX 1060 and RX 580 are pretty comparable GPUs, and many people would prefer Nvidia for various reasons. I would have thought that selling one and buying the other (second hand) wouldn't cost much money, but fair enough. How much does an RX 570 go for in the US?

    Which brand of hd 7950 do you have ?

    If you EFI flash the HD 7950 ( or even a HD 7970 which I have currently ) you then have a "Metal supported " GPU plus EFI screen.
