Proxmox, I'm in the middle of experimenting with it. I'm going to work soon and may forget to check when I get back, either tag me in a post or send me a PM and I'll give you the links to the guides I've followed to get passthrough working. You will need either a second graphics adaptor (onboard is fine) or another machine to connect to the management interface once you disable the GPU and pass it over to your VM.

 

A new SSD would be useful too. I'm using a whole machine to test with.

UnRAID can do this. I have a single Nvidia GPU that I pass to the required VM which I occasionally switch from my Plex VM to my BOINC/F@H Dockers. 

It's not free, but its cheap for a low number of disks. 

 

ESXi can do GPU Passthrough and its free. It can be managed by its vSphere interface or by vSphere client and PowerCLI.

 

Theres also Proxmox which uses KVM/QEMU just like UnRAID. It's free, just takes a bit more skill to configure.

You can just go with ESXi. It enables you to pass-through your GPU to a VM. Check it here for more details https://www.vmwareblog.org/vmware-covered-performance-gap-physical-virtual-gpus/

The nice thing is that you can have a free version of ESXi. That will be the most simple and efficient way to go.

Here is the guide https://blogs.vmware.com/apps/2018/09/using-gpus-with-virtual-machines-on-vsphere-part-3-installing-the-nvidia-grid-technology.html.
