so maybe you can advise what intel NIC i should get to work for me?
The hardware recommendations guide in the resources section (https://www.truenas.com/community/resources/hardware-recommendations-guide.12/) has this to say about it:
For Gigabit Ethernet, the recommendation is simple: Intel. Any Intel 1GbE controller will work fine.
Intel I217/I218/I219-series
The I217/218/219 series of NICs is actually just a PHY for the gigabit Ethernet hardware present in the PCH. These are basic adapters that will be fine for most users but lack certain features that may be useful in more complex environments. Note that -V models are not officially supported under FreeBSD (andthus TrueNAS), whereas the -LM models are officially supported.
Intel I210
The I210 NIC is a very popular model, close to a standalone I217 with some additional features (notably the ability to be multiplexed between host and BMC).
Intel I350
The I350 NIC is Intel’s high-end GbE model and supports high-end features such as Virtual Machine Device Queues (VMDq) and Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV). It is available in both two-and four-port models.

Plug and play. Most people configure it in the gui and away you go.
