Is there a need? You will spend more money in time spent on a long defunct operating system that you will on small new server.

You could try to virtualize the server. VMware provides video for Windows 2000. I have a Windows 2000 Virtual machine.

yes, there is a need. Yes, I know I virtualize it, but that's not what I need.
I need a video card that supports windows 2000

I would suggest ebay for a compatible card.

Practically any card will do. Just run it using the basic ms driver. Even the newest cards will run using that. Just don't expect high resolutions etc., but that wouldn't be necessary for such an ancient OS anyway.

Rindi:  Do you have any info on how to install the basic MS driver on Windows 2000?  I don't care about high res, all I want is standard 1024 x 768 res.

You don't need to install anything. Just use the default video driver Windows finds during OS installation.
