Sun X4100 graphics

Hello all.
I have a requirement to install a aftermarket video card in the server, can you advise what fits? or if there is a sun riser part which convers the PCIx slot to PCIe
The unit is a standard x4100 with PCIx slots, not an M2 with the PCIe slots.

i have been asked to see if its possible, a colleague has option to use the unit for a trial and from my understanding is the units PCIx. which slims down the options, i would like to find out what cards fit the slot otherwise i may look to recommend he gets hold of the m2 variant which will give hime PCIe options to which alot of the better cards are available
