Replacement for old video card

Hello everyone :)

first of all, I apologize if this is the wrong newsgroup to ask this,
but I had no idea where to start from. I'm looking for a replacement
for an old Creative Labs 3D Blaster Vesa Local Bus card. This card was
released back in 1995 during the 486's last days and used the VLB
connector (the one before PCI). It was the first ever produced 3D
video accelerator and it co-existed alongside the regular 2D video
card (like the Voodoo2 for example). It used a proprietary chipset
called Game Glint. I had one of these cards in my old 486 I use for
DOS games, but it has stopped working, so now I'm looking for another
one as a replacement, but it's not easy to find one. Could anyone
suggest me where I could look for one ? Or what is the most
appropriate newsgroup to ask for something like this ? Thank you very
much in advance to everyone :)
