do you want to use cat 6a and above or is it a short run where direct attach copper makes sense.

A 10G card only makes sense if you have a 10G router or switch installed and at least one other device that shares the same bandwith. I have 2x ASUS cards with AQ107 controllers on them, price between 95 and 120 USD per card depending on the seller.

A 10G enabled switch with 2x 10G ports will set you back about 400 USD, a router even more.

what are you connecting it to?

 

The aquantia ones are cheap, intel x550 and their higherend cards have more features, but you probably don't need those features.

so a pair of new 10gb rj45 are 180$+ cat 6a cable putting you at 200$

a pair of 10gb SFP+ are 140$ + 10m cable is 160-200

these cheep SFP nics also have 2 ports which allow you to have more computers atached

what router do you have?

 

Is there any other 10g devices on your lan? Normally setting up 10g for wan connections doesn't make any sense.

What model is your router?

 

If your other devices don't support 10g, the card will run at 1g, and will provide no benfit.

 

When you need 10g, just buy the card later, they will only get better.

 

Also network standards change a lot, so no use buying into 10G-baseT if your not going to use it.

I'd have to agree with the above, I only went 10G so that when copying from my PC to the NAS it doesn't bottleneck transfers from the NAS to other clients.  Or when copying games between my laptop and desktop.

 

There is zero point in "future proofing" for 10G (other than cabling, if you need to replace it anyway), as the parts might be 1/3 the price by the time you need them.

Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense WiFi: Zyxel NWA210AX (~940Mbit peak) + Ubiquiti nanoHD (OpenWRT)
ISPs: Zen VDSL (66Mbit) + Lebara 4G [Vodafone] (~120Mbit) + Three 5G (~700Mbit during quiet hours, ~500Mbit peak hours)
