Default What Metal compatible video card should I get?

What is a good "Metal" compatible video card that most of you are using. With the crazy market for GPU's for gaming and crypto mining, I've been holding off doing this useful upgrade to my 4.1 cheese grater dual processor/8 core Nehalem MacPro (flashed to 5.1 but no RAM speed or processor upgrade). Is it necessary to do some power connector acrobatics for the new video card? Also, how do I get one that is flashed for Mac so that I get the boot screen? Is that something I can do easily or does it need to come already flashed from the factory. The machine is just sitting in the corner unused. All this talk about OpenCore seems like I can get some life out of this workhorse.
