Swapping 63mm suspension fork for rigid fork. What options exist?

I have a sub-par suspension fork with 63mm of travel that I would like to exchange for a suspension corrected rigid fork with space for 700c wheels. Does this kind of fork exist, because I have only seen those corrected for 80mm? And could I use a 80mm fork, or does that spell death for me? And what other considerations are there to make when changing a suspension fork to a rigid one?
