Hi, I have 13" macbook pro early 2011 running macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 
I would like to setup eGPU with the macbook and as I don't use external monitor, I would like the eGPU to accelerate internal monitor. I don't play games, but need improvement in rendering photos and video editing.

I'm thinking a setup as follows:
- Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 550W
- RX 580
- NewerTech HDMI Headless Video Accelerator
- Thunderbolt 3 to 2 adapter

I would like to know whether the above setup will work?

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
