Yes, actually it will. But it will be downgraded to that bandwidth.

Technically .. it should. All 8x agp cards are ment to be 4x, 2x, and 1x. compatible. But there is always the chance things can go wrong.

I asked the same question 5 days ago, when I bought a GeForce 6600gt 8x AGP, for my 4x AGP mobo. It works .. and the only quirk with it is the mass underpowerage of my psu. But yes .. it works.

it depends, if it is an AGP 2.0 card, it will fit a AGP 2x slot, but be at AGP2x

If it is an AGP3.0card, then it will only fit AGP 8X slot, but you can forse it to run ay 4x

that would be a dumb idea though to use a vid card in a 4x agp slot.
