Thanks!

Which card?

It was a Sapphire HD7950 that OWC had at the time...not cheap by the time it came here. But it started screen flashing right from the get go - every 5-10 minutes. I read about many users having the same issue so we sent it back...

You must have caught a bad charge then. Those cards are great and I personally have tested 2 PC versions that were flashed for Mac, that were working fine.

The AMD Radeon HD 7950

The only difference to the PC version vs. the Mac Edition is that they look different (red but white) and do not have a BIOS switch.

My MSI Radeon RX560 Aero ITX 4GB works great with Mojave and High Sierra 10.13.6. No boot screen and little time to start but honestly, who cares?
Once logged in, everything works perfectly.

I tried both OS but I decided to go back to HS, Mojave runs slower at the moment on my Mac Pro 2010 12 cores.

A user who needs to switch between certain drives and OS's does care!

I worked with these guys three years ago. Zero downtime. Upgraded mainboard, RAM and GPU.
