I'm looking at buying my first Mac, ever, with the MBP 15" 1TB. But I'd like to use my existing stuff with it (below). 2 questions that my fairly extensive searching online has failed to answer, this looks like the place to find the hardcores. I hope!

- Does the new MBP and latest MacOS support DisplayPort MST daisychaining?
- What are the best, most concise adapters to hook up all my hardware below?
Monitor: Dell U2414H 23.8" 1920x1080 60Hz Monitor (Purchased For $200.00)
Monitor: Dell U2414H 23.8" 1920x1080 60Hz Monitor (Purchased For $200.00)
Monitor: Dell U2414H 23.8" 1920x1080 60Hz Monitor (Purchased For $200.00)
Keyboard: Corsair Vengeance K70 Wired Gaming Keyboard (Purchased For $110.00)
Mouse: Logitech G303 Daedalus Apex Wired Optical Mouse (Purchased For $70.00)
Speakers: Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 120W 2.1ch Speakers (Purchased For $100.00)

Thanks, help me buy my first Mac! I played with the new MBP in the store and disagree with all the negative reviews, thing is awesome. With a few adapters, it's a desktop replacement and more for me- completely willing to spend the $3000US if I can make this work.

Well you may well be better off with a thunderbolt 3 dock to run your monitors and peripherals.

Something like this

Or this

And OWC are doing one with 13 ports it seems as well

Where can I buy the elgato TB3 dock? Couldn't find it on amazon/apple store/google.
Unfortunately it's not released yet, coming soon on their website

The trouble with tb3 stuff is that the Windows computer makers have been very slow to implement it so there isn't a huge incentive for makers to release stuff yet and the issues with certain older and newer TB3 protocols. clouded the issue as well.
