|Why do you think an 8X AGP card cannot run on the motherboard? |
FYI, AGP speeds are required to be backwards compatible. In other words, any 8X card should support 1X; 2X & 4X (AGP 2.0) speeds. More than anything, the apprehension usually has to do with signal voltage & unless you have a 8X (AGP 3.0) card that only signal @ 0.8V & I strongly doubt that, any 8X card you come across will more than likely work just fine, since all 8X cards are capable of signaling @ either 1.5V or 0.8V AFAIK.
