Graphics card for plex

I'm wanting to get a graphics card for hardware transcoding in plex, ordered and installed a gtx 1030 before I knew what I was doing, and it does not transcode, I should have done my homework, just about to get a quadro p400, but does anyone have a better idea? Thanks

I can tell you to get a Quadro P2000 and be done with it, but I'm sure not everyone has P2000-dough hidden under the couch.

 

I tried a Quadro P400 and I can tell you that it's not quite up to snuff. It's barely any better than the built-in GPU on my i5-4570. Since I only have a budget Plex server build, I ended up purchasing a used Nvidia 1050Ti.

 

Consider also that many people are saying that a Turing-based Nvidia card makes for a better transcoded video quality... if you're into that.
