All the networks cards should be compatible with each other, so any 4 port card that works in your pc can talk to the synology.

 

One note is connecting 4 ports won't just give you 4 gigabit speeds though.

Any NIC will work, Ethernet is ethernet… but I would recommend sticking with Intel NIC’s, especially for gigabit. Things like this are usually a solid bet:

I run one of those for my pfsense VM on my homelab, it’s been great for many years. 
 

Also, as stated above, having multiple NIC’s will not automatically give you in this case 4x1gigabit speed. You would need to bond the interfaces together and need a switch that supports such a config as well (im not well informed enough to know more then this tho).
