Gen 1 16x video card Wherezitat?

I have a machine I use for Blender and other graphics. I'm about to upgrade it to 4GbRAM, but am having difficulty finding a PCI Express 16x V1 (Gen 1) video card for it. Everything I've looked at is V2, or even V3 now. Any ideas for a reliable source where I can find this holy grail? I'd be happy with 512Mb video RAM, but a Gig would be great.

I plan to build a whole new machine in a few months, but last time I planned for that I ended up having to spend A LOT of time on home improvement. (When this house finally goes on the market someday, it'll be a sweet urban survivalist's dream... ). In the meantime, I'd like to get my old XP machine to be all that it can be without painting it olive drab...

PCIe v2 and 3 should be backward compatible with v1.

Any PCI Express video card will work in any PCI Express slot as long as it's physically x16 lanes.

Coooool!!

Sorry, Leigh... I guess I became confused with the title "General" Discussions... :(

Thanx to the rest!! That probably cleared up a serious dilemma. I'd ask more questions, but... well... you know...
