Have it rebuilt; it is cheaper than finding another transmission. I ordered my parts from drivetrain.com after taking apart the transmission and identifying which piece was spinning (when it wasn't supposed to). I had a local transmission shop do the work on the actual gearbox, and I just put it back into it's case and bolted it back up to the bell housing. (I'd just replaced the clutch about 6 months previous) Here's a link to an exploded-view graphic of the transmission. Yours is probably very similar if not the same.
Automotive Nissan FS5W71 Transmission illustrated parts drawings assisting you in identification of correct parts.
The part that failed was #65 (the woodruff keys) which allowed #45 (the Counter Drive Gear) to spin on #46 (the Counter Gear Shaft) which has some other gears machined into it as well. I ended up replacing #61, 62, 45, 65 and 46. It was about $200 in parts and 85 bucks labor at the transmission shop.
