  1. Hi guys, I've been following some of the eGPU guides very closely as I've decided to piece together my MBP 15" 2015 with the AMD R9 with an EVGA gtx 980 TI so I can virtually do almost anything with one laptop ranging from music production, to heavy gaming and with the upcoming Oculus and HTC Vive, thought I could throw that in the mix as well. Using this link: https://odd-one-out.serek.eu/thunderbolt-2-egpu-setup-using-akitio-thunder2/ I did want to see if I've got everything good to go as I'm no pro at this and basically able to piece together things thanks to the help of reading so much on this site. So thank you so much to users like TheGrreatGatsby and Dschijn helping me understand the what and how-to! First of all, Specs: 2.5 ghz quad-core 16 gigs RAM 1 TB SSD Including bootcamp, win 10 home (UEFI) Things I've got (or yet to receive): AKiTiO Thunder2 PCIe box PCI-Express PCI-E 8X to 16X Riser Card Flexible Ribbon Extender Cable w/Molex EVGA 500w 80 plus power supply Many sized screw drivers to modify the PCIe box if needed I was also going to purchase the Dell 180W DA-3/DA-2 AC Power Adapter Plus Cord for OptiPlex Ultra Small Form Factor but was unsure if it was needed or not as it wasn't specified on the above link that I used to convince myself I could do this. There isn't much or none at all that have info on combining the 980 TI with this 2015 15" MBP so I was wondering if anyone could assure me that I have the right bits and pieces and ultimately if it would work or not. Thank you for your help and hope my questions could be answered! Cheers
