Hello all,

The forums have helped me dip my feet back into the computer world. I finally broke down and got a late 2016 mbp touchbar after my hacked and modded mac pro tower have finally come to an end macOS support wise.

My current setup is
2016 13" MacBook Pro TouchBar i5 8gb 512gb Flash
Razer Core X with Vega 56
macOS 10.14.3 abd Windows 10 Pro 1809

Got eyefinity working on three curved 27" monitors under 1809

I was able to make a third partition and clone automate's scripts over to it so its all self contained on the MacBook pro. The only thing I have when booting into bootcamp is ensure that I am starting from a cold boot, If its a restart I get high fans and a boot cycle.

With the lack of support now for the original mac pro I'm thinking of pulling my old 760 GTX card and getting a second enclosure. Until I can upgrade the Vega 56 to the new R7 or the new AMD's that are coming later this year. I know I can get the 760 running as I tested the Razer Core X with it before the Vega 56 arrived.

My question is on a second enclosure so I purchase another Core X 316.94 USD
OR
Get a HP Omen Accelerator found a place I can get them for 189.97 USD with the intentions of when I purchase a new GPU put the new GPU in the Core X and place the Vega 56 into the HP Omen

Feedback and suggestions with both options would be greatly appreciated.

I plan on doing a full build post when I get the time.
