True Two in One Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,


i am very new in this forum (actually, just signed up) but i have big plans.

Since i am using macOS for my university and work for almost 4 years now, i am very drawn to the ecosystem.

But, like many Mac Users i am not very happy with Apples hardware choice and especially the pricing.


Since i really like to game as well, i would also like to upgrade my PC.

Therefore i thought, why not build a dualboot system? I know it's possible and not too exotic. 


Due to the nature of macOS my only real option in GPU choice would be AMD, more specific a RX 5700XT. 

For PC gaming any many Render engines, like Maxwell, Nvidia GPUs take the lead and is many times the only option.


So, now for my question: Is it possible, to build a system which runs a Dualboot and changes between AMD GPU while on macOS and NVIDIA GPU while on Windows?

Maybe even use the NVIDIA GPU as primary GPU on Windows and use the AMD one for other tasks in the meantime?

If yes, how is it to be configured?


Budget (including currency): 3000€

Country: Germany

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 


I thought about a configuration like this one:


Ryzen 9 3900X

Gigabyte B550 Vision D (for the looks) 

64GB Ram (min 3200MHz)

x2 Crucial P1 1TB

RX 5700XT with Watercooling (EK)

GeForce RTX 2080 Super with Watercooling (EK)

Custom Waterloop for GPU and CPU

min 2x 360mm Radiator

1000W Power Supply (mind 80+ Gold)


Depending on case and cooling components i should get by just under 3000€


Any ideas? 


Sorry if this is the wrong section :)
