Should I buy a Aorus GTX 1080 Gaming Box? Can it be used with MBP w/ TB2 + TB3 to TB2 Adapter on macOS 10.12.6 (not Windows)?

I’m been wondering if I could use Aorus GTX 1080 Gaming Box with my MBP on macOS instead of Akitio Node? Because it think it would help me save a bunch of money.

I also thinking of buying one Aorus gtx 1080, and im new in the area, so what are you saying is that with a MBP with tb2 you can use the Aorus with an adapter TB3 to T2? Sorry for the bad english

I have successfully used the Aorus Gaming Box 1070 on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch,Early 2015) with TB3-to-TB2 adapter and Mac OS X 10.12.

I have a late 2017 MacBook Pro 13” touch bar.  I don’t want to game in Boot Camp, and I have an external monitor.  If I can actually find this box , will it be an easy set up or should I opt for a AMD card with native OS X support

can somebody tell me, if the update on 10.13.2 or later is "a problem" and makes it not work anymore?

I am confused about that.
