Why don't you see the Atikio Node with the 470 ?

I don't recommend XFX cards. In my years of trying GPU on the Mac Pro tower, XFX GPUs are most likely to be trouble. Sapphire, Gigabyte are brands which typically work well with Macs.

As a rule of thumb, the closer to reference design a GPU is, the higher chance of success.
