I recently bought a Xserve G5 that has Tiger Server on it.

I'm looking to learn OSX Server just to expand my knowledge on OSX.

It didn't come with a video card which is fine cause I can install via target-disk mode. But I'd like to get a PCI-X Video card for it so I can plug it into my rack so I can hook it up to my KVM.

Anyone have any ideas where I could find a PCI-X Video Card?

I've done some google searches as well as contact some outside Mac Resellers to see if they might have some kicking around with no luck.

This is the Xserve I got

Works fine. Got it cheap.

Any ideas?

PCI-X is PCI compatible. No need to search PCI-X card. Almost any of these (http://computers.shop.ebay.com/Graphics-Video-Cards-/3762/i.html?rt=nc&Interface=PCI&_nkw=mac%20pci&_catref=1&_dmpt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&_fln=1&_ssov=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m282) ("almost" i.e. except Kona) will do. Get ATI (Rage 16 MB will be the cheapest one).
