Default New to PT Native Hardware

So I've been using PT Ultimate for years now with a MOTU traveller and it's time to upgrade. I'm thinking of buying a 2018 Mac Mini and Avid Omni. I don't need HDX so in order to connect the Omni to the computer I need a Native system.

My question is this: Do I need to purchase the native thunderbolt system or can I just buy a native card and an expansion chasis? The native thunderbolt systems are pretty pricey compared to the Sonnet eGFX boxes. I know the eGFX boxes work with HDX cards, but will they work with the native cards? The articles I've seen on PTE and the Avid site aren't clear.

Thanks!
