Web Drivers work but MacOS is EXTREMELY laggy!

Not just a little laggy, it's laggy beyond being even a little usable.

I'm on 10.13.6 and I'm running the 40.105 drivers. About This Mac shows PNY Nvidia GTX 970 4GB and the NVidia tray icon shows Web Drivers. Also my dock is see through.

But that's where all the good news ends, everything is EXTREMELY laggy:

  1. clicking things in safari doesnt work, I have to right click and select open
  2. hovering over the dock takes 3 seconds for the zoom animation to work and only has 1 frame
  3. the terminal app wont update the output until I click it or resize it (macOS installer had this problem too which concerns me)
  4. A lot of the times I still boot to a black screen with a cursor and have to try again. Other times I have a cursor with the apple logo. One time it booted all the way to my desktop (I have auto login on) and the boot screen fadeout animation never finished so I could see my desktop behind a semi-transparent black apple logo....
  5. Clover just freezes when I go to the "mount EFI" tab
  6. Dragging windows around is quite laggy
  7. Videos don't play on youtube.com (it took a long time to even get safari open and loaded to youtube to test this)

It's honestly hard for me to say if these are GPU problems or somehow other problems with my hackintosh given how weird some of the issues are, but everything just seems SUPER sluggish.

I have also tried unticking "inject intel" but it didn't fix the problem. The only thing on the GPU page I have ticked is "use web drivers". and platform-id 0x59120003 (my iGPU is connectorless and I boot with HDMI with the 970). I'm on Skylake though and don't know if I should be using this ID or if I need 0x19120001. Honestly I don't know what this id is for.

My specs are:
