Not knowing your application or tasking for your server, i cant make a full recommendation. I'm presuming you are not wanting to use this for a gaming machine.
One very determining factor is whether you are running 32bit or 64bit version of 2003. there are some fairly decent choices for cards but some won't support both 32 and 64 bit versions. If you have a particular card in mind, i would recommend first going to the manufacturers website and checking for compatibility with server2003
The geforce 5200 and 5500 from EVGA, PNY both come in PCI version with 128MB or 256MB onboard.
They are getting harder to find but are still to be found for a reasonable price online. i run a 5500 in one of my IBM X series servers dual processor with no hitches and no stability issues.
32 bit support using older Nvidia drivers from Nvidia driver archives.
64 bit drivers currently available in latest Nvidia drivers version
The Visiontek Radeon 9250 PCI (ATI chipset) also runs well in both dell and IBM servers from my experience, and comes with 128MB or 256MB onboard.
64 bit support with current ATI drivers
32 bit support from older driver packages found on net.
One of the biggest considerations is whether the card will be properly recognized at first. Video cards and other peripherals behave differently in a server than in a desktop. Just dropping any PCI video card in may cause you some grief in time spent troubleshooting.
Another very important consideration is the video memory on the card.
Your 1800 requires ECC registered memory, but the onboard video memory on the video card can cause a problem when it starts trying to share the system memory. Not always, but this can cause a number problems, most common are blue screens.
Again, without knowing which version of 2003 you are running, i cant offer much more sound advice, because that is the biggest determining factor.
hope this helps, and if i have helped you, please dont forget to rate.

SOURCE: how to remove cooling shroud
To do that you need to:
Turn off the system, including any attached peripherals, and disconnect the system from the electrical
outlet. Then open up the system.
To remove the cooling shroud, release the blue latches on the shroud by pulling each latch outward
from its securing tab.
Lift the shroud straight up to disengage the fan connector from the system board, and then lift the
shroud out of the system.
