    Ordered the Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Puck Radeon RX 570 from Amazon for $499. Chose expedited shipping at checkout. Ordered Tuesday afternoon, got the unit Friday afternoon. Customs duties/import fees were already included in the final cost. Dota2 and Fortnite are now at 60fps+ at high settings on my 2017 13" MBP TB. ;-)

    Hi guys, question.

    Planning to get a Razer Core X but still undecided as to what graphics card to get so I can connect two (2) LG 4K Monitors through Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C.

    Any recommendations?
