Question Agp 8x videocard in a 4x slot, does it affect performance?

I am ordering a geforce 6600 to go along with my sempron 2800 for my budget gaming rig. My mobo has only a 2x/4x agp slot though. So i know the vid card will still owrk in the slot but how much will the performance be affected? Will it be really bad or will it be about the same? I am planning on upgrading my mobo and cpu within the next 3 months but until then i still wanna use this card in this comp so how much will it be affected if an 8x agp vid card is in a 4x slot?

thanx in advance
