Hello,
I am planning to buy the 2018 Macbook Pro with 16gb ram and 512 ssd storage. I am a bit confused between the eGPU I should buy: Sonnet Breakaway Box 650 or Mantiz Venus 550? The graphic card i have in mind is Asus Radeon Vega 56. I will be extensively using it for Video Editing. And is 16gb ram enough for this kind of work and setup?  Can anyone please suggest me ?

And I was also wondering if this kind of eGPU setup would work fine on an iMac 2017 27 inch model? Since it would be cheaper compared to Macbook Pro 2018.

Thank you.
