Will an 8x AGP graphic card work in a 4x AGP slot?

Thanks

Generally yes. Sometimes no.

Depends on the physical slot on the motherboard. Some slots are keyed for 1.5V (AGP3 or 8×) only, while most accept 1.5V or 3.3V (AGP2 or 4×) cards.

It should work fine, but can you tell us which card? We might be able to give you a more solid answer.
