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.
