3900x for server - No need for GPU, What do I get?

So I am going to be running a dedicated gaming server with the 3900x where a GPU is not needed.
However since the 3900x has zero iGPU - i guess I need something?

What is the cheapest thing I can get away with?
My local microcenter has these

$40 - EVGA GeForce 210 Low Profile Single-Fan 1GB DDR3 PCIe Video Card
$46 - MSI GeForce GT 710 Low Profile 1GB DDR3 PCIe Video Card
$35 - Visiontek Radeon HD 5450 Low-Profile Passive 1GB DDR3 PCIe Video Card

These are basically the cheapest they have.. it will end up being headless and I will remote in via teamviewer.

I am like you in a 3900 that is esxi, nas all in one server and went with the gt710.
If you can, by the gt710 that is pciex1 slot and you will save the pciex16 slots for other cards, at least i gained a lot with this card because i have in my board 2 hp raid controllers, 1 hp 2x10gb fiber card and 1 x 8gb fc for my other nas.

Thanks for the heads up.

You can achieve the same result with a pcieX1 to pciX16 riser card , its a small x1 card with a usb3 cable that goes to a pcix16. They use them with mining but works also great and i had bought one. The only caveat is you need to have a hole or make one to your case to be able to connect a monitor.

I'm not sure if any of those have EFI GOP boot, except maybe the gt710. If the gt710 has it, get that one, you want to be able to boot in EFI mode if you're going to be using larger storage. If it doesn't, I vagely recall the gt720 or gt730 (not sure which) is the cheapest and oldest card with that feature. (all newer cards have it as it was needed for "compatible with Windows 7" certification)

go on eBay and buy an OEM card. they sell dirt cheap because people don't know they exist and don't search for them.

CTRL + F and search for "OEM" on this list for NVIDIA and on this list for AMD.

GTX 645, GT 310, GT 635, GT 420, HD 8450, HD 7470, and R5 220 I've each gotten for under ~$15 shipped in the past year or two for HWBOT.

Dedicated X470 server motherboard, first saw it in an LTT video. It has onboard graphics specifically for IPMI.

or you can buy an RTX 2070 Super and still have money left over for a pizza and a case of beer for the same amount of money, lol.

Its a server, why would you need GPU for it? Just SSH in, you can install the OS on another PC.

Yeah but does it come with dual 10 GbE? You're right though, this actually is a terrible solution. Maybe not if it were $200 cheaper.
