Exactly, so why wouldn't an AGP 8x card work? AGP 8x is infact backwards compatible.

This 6600GT will run FEAR reasonably well, but not maxed out.

a vanilla 6800 will run FEAR even better if you can still find one in AGP.

Oh, I didn't know AGP 8x could run in 4x. That's nifty. In that case, get one of the above mentioned 6 series cards.

I went looking for videocards, the 6 series are only for 8x, so my options would have to be the RADEON 9250 128MB, or the GeForce FX 5200, 5500. so basically I'm going to have to get a new motherboard, which one should I get?
