Recommend nic from ebay for virtualization lab

I am putting together some new hardware for virtualization work - Openstack/Neutron.
It’s a 16 core AMD 5950x that I want to complement with a proper 2 port nic.
A Lawrence video mentioned Chelsio from ebay.
I was hoping someone would recommend a make/model that would be a good catch on ebay today. I am flexible with cost if there is reason to be.
Thanks for reading.

Whichever card you select I’d go for a quad port.

Intel i340 or i350 in quad port would be my recommendation.
