    I don't see this anywhere, but I currently have a Flashed XFX R9 280x with 3 monitors and considering getting a RX 480. What I've been able to discern from searching so far is:

    Get a Gigabyte or Sapphire model (what's the exact model 8gb that works best?)
    4 or 8gb model works
    No Boot Screen (No Flash at this time)
    Need to modify Kext for Metal/acceleration

    Am I missing anything?

    What I need to know though, is do all the ports work and will I still be able to use 3 displays? I can use bootchamp to switch to Windows and in emergencies my GT120.

    Thanks in advance

    I don't see why it wouldn't. I tried all the ports (3 DisplayPort and 1 HDMI) on several reference cooler Sapphire RX 480 GPUs. They all work. The best way to limit connectivity issues is to use DisplayPort monitors.
