I installed today Fedora 27 ( The ISO with KDE Desktop environment ) and one thing i noticed is after the updates were installed KDE crashed.

I restarted it and after that it was working fine but i powered up my computer now and the session couldnt start.. i was seeing the KDE loading logo and i was hearing sound in the background, so i went to the cli and started the xserver again.

My GPU is a Sapphire R9 380X and cpu is ryzen 5 1500x. Ask me if you need any logs cause i dont know where to start.

Also i have 2 monitors. When the system starts it automatically displays ONLY the second monitor for the login screen and when i login the primary monitor opens. I tried to disable the second monitor so i can enable it only when i need it but it doesn't keep the setting.. could this be the problem? I unplugged the second monitor and i think it boots faster now into fedora.

Try starting system with amdgpu.dc=1kernel parameter. It's a new display stack for newer AMD GPUs, with kernel 4.17 it'll be the default one.

Next time use updated images, you'll have less updates to install and hopefully better out of the box experience.
