I am building a Esxi server and have been looking at 10gig cards. I was looking at the HP 560SFP+ card but I was worried if having it in a 1U server it might get too hot.
If there is another cost effective card that can work in a 1U server supported under Esxi 7 please let me know

That card only uses ~10W, so, it's not much heat. 1U doesn't mean poor cooling. As long as your server isn't fanless, should be fine.
