Looking for Good cheap gpu for plex (unraid docker)

Looking for something that can transcode or just offload the processing from the cpu, at most 2 streams will be active and 99% of things will be 720/1080 60. Will be the odd thing here and there at 4k but nothing more than that, I was thinking maybe a gt710 or similar but considering it's for an unraid docker instance would another card be better suited or should I put in the effort to have a dedicated vm for it?

you can easilly get a GTX 1660S or RX 6600 for around 300-400 USD, fairly cheap, pretty good. i dont know exactly what is needed for plex despite having a plex server in my house myself. all i know is these have at least double if not quadruple the ammount of DRAM, and i believe would be better for most systems and applications, Plex i believe would mainly rely on the cpu as i believe you said but you dont want a gpu that will bottleneck it.

The cheapest GPU with the latest NVENC encoder (Turing) is the 1650 Super. 

 

Keep in mind that GPU transcoding requires a Plex Pass subscription.

HD 785077870s (anything above a 7750 really)  will do this and you can get those for like $50 on eBay.

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".
