Relax, the card should work fine, as long as there are no incompatibilities with the motherboard (check ECS' site).

It'll just run in AGP 4x mode instead of 8x.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

Exactly what Martin said! You won't get the full 100% quality of what the video card was made to be, but it should work fine!

BUT that doesnt mean you can put a 4x card in an 8x slot, 8x cards run at .5v (something really small, under 1v) and 4x cards run at 1.5v, you will fry your 8x slot if you put a 4x only card in it (this is for 4x cards ONLY and 8x slots ONLY), but what you are doing is fine
