There are still some older AMD cards that will work depending on which macOS version is used.

Would be best to purchase a used Nvidia Kepler card unless you want to spend $300 + on an RX 560.

i want to upgrade my mini build to Big Sur

I don't know what length of card you can fit. It depends on other things installed in the case. Are all the HDD cages installed ? So look at some of the options and their lengths and pick one that might work.
  • GTX 770
  • GTX 760/Ti
  • GT 740 (Avoid OEM versions)
  • GT 730 (GK208 core)
  • GT 720
  • GT 710 (GK208 core versions)
  • GTX 690
  • GTX 680
  • GTX 670
  • Quadro 410
  • Quadro K420
  • Quadro K600
  • Quadro K2000/D
  • Quadro K4200
  • Quadro K5000
  • Quadro K5200
  • Quadro NVS510
