I want to update my 5.1 to Mojave and obviously I need to get a GPU that supports metal.

I have been told by some that although I can connect my MDP cinema display I wont get sound to it through various cards.

Is this true?

I know some cards on the list apple have said are compatible don't have MDP ports and only DP ports so with some I would need an adapter.

Ideally I would like a SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition but they are quite rare it would seem and quite pricey.

If anyone could shed some light on this. Obviously I want the full functionality of my display so if you could help select the right card for me I would be very greatful.

Thank you,
