Hi mates.
I know that 7xxx series are not supported since 10.6
But can i do something there?
i have mac pro 3,1 with a 680GTX running perfect but without boot screen. I get a 7300GT native to get bootscreen and a second graphic card.

Can i do something?

thanks!

another way?
Not with that GT 7300. There is no way to give it graphics acceleration under El Capitan. If you absolutely need a boot screen, by far the easiest option is to flash your GTX 680. Alternatively, you could purchase a different Mac-specific card, such as a Radeon 5770, which will also give you boot screens and a second GPU.

They play fine together under macOS/OS X. Those cards shouldn't require any additional drivers to function simultaneously. I ran a Radeon 5570 and a GTX 660 alongside each other for years with no issues.
