This is on a Microserver Gen 8, Upgraded Xeon E3-1265L, 16gb RAM.


I recommend the Intel X520-DA1 (SFP+ 10Gb) for 40$ on Aliexpress, ONLY paired with a SFP+ 10Gb Fiber Module (RJ-45 is NOT SUPPORTED) from FS (around 10$).
> You NEED a SFP+ Router though, I highly recommend the managed QNAP QSW-M2108-2C (around 450$).
> I recommend setting up the new 10GB NIC as the ONLY ONE (through USB-switcheroo and ILO Management, won't make a tutorial : don't go this route if you need a tutorial)


I got a 10Gb Internet fiber ISP so it might be overkill for most.
