I'm requesting to get help in forum because all I see is put ur questions in the ask before buy and then no one will answer you...

Do I get help here or is it just for people who already achieved the egpu build and it's just for showing off?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

The most obvious reason why nobody's answering is that nobody has experience in the hardware combination you're asking for. If you're asking for a common setup, just check out the build guides and ask the people in the specific thread. Another possible solution is that you posted in the wrong topic. The best topic to ask for pre-purchase advises is

Setup: MacBook Pro 2018 15" 2.6GHz Radeon Pro 560X on macOS 10.14 & Windows 10 (Bootcamp); Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 350 with a Zotac GTX1080 AMP! Edition

You can get help here, as many others have. Just keep in mind that sometimes people do not answer because they do not know, not because you are being ignored on purpose.

It might also be that people haven't noticed your post for some reason, or that everyone who could know the answer to your question was busy with real life at the time, and thus missed it. We're all community volunteers here, not a service provider.
