8x is the fastest AGP will go. But I think if you have an AGP 8x card and you put it in an AGP 2x slot it will only work at 2x. The speed is ultimately regulated by the motherboard.

make sure that the new mobo is the same socket as the cpu!

If they are different it won't work.

Yeah go with that motherboard. Although I would suggest saving up some cash and getting something better, because it seems to me you want an Intel chip. So go with this...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128296

It's like $66.00, only a buck more then you're spending on that motherboard. Not to mention it's Socket T (LGA 775). Supports Celeron D and Pentium 4, obviosly.

But if you want a card that supports AGP 8x, just get a Radeon X700, either that or a Radeon 9800.
