Default 4x agp bottle neck

one of my computers has a 4x agp slot..
what would you guys say is the best video card that would work, and not be too big of a bottle neck due to the fact it's 4x?

Take your pick of 4x/8x cards:

Of course it would run faster in 8x mode, but the difference wouldn't be terribly noticable. If your talking about gaming performance other factors come into play such as CPU speed and the amount of RAM available to the system.
