Default Motherboard Compatability with FX 5500?

Will the e-GeForce FX 5500 board work in my motherboard? It is an AGP 8X/4X board. The motherboard manual states it will support an AGP 4X/2X board. The motherboard is a Asus P4S533-E (Socket 478).

If I download the latest Asus AGP driver and have problems, can I revert to my old driver? I am using an LCD display with1280x1024 resolution.

Thanks,
Bruce

It should be fine.

Should work just fine. The FX5500 doesn't even come close to filling the 4xAGP bus.
