2012 21.5 inch Imac Egpu Support (how)
For now, I understand that I need to have the bison box 3, a separate power supply, apple's tb3 to tb2 adapter.
However, is this all I need? Please note that using an external monitor is not an option for me, I will accept any other workarounds like bootcamp , installing patches and Nvidia drivers etc.
Could someone tell me if the three things and the gtx 780 is all I need as well as the necessary steps or softwares I have to run?
Is there any limitations to this setup? My main goal is to turn my main working and web browsing computer to a decent gaming. computer able to run csgo at 150-200fps at med. 1080p settings or Fortnite at med. 1080p with 100-150 fps.
I found a used bison box at an amazing US$200 price tag negotiable and could be even cheaper as I don't want the psu. I have a spare 650w 80+ bronze power supply and I am willing to spend a few extra bucks on the cable and adapter (even though the apple adapter is painfully overpriced). I already have the gtx 780 and I don't feel like replacing it for a better gpu.
Please help, as egpu could be my only option as I don't want to buy another computer yet. Thanks!
