4x is compatible with 8x AGP slot, but I don't know about a 1x card fitting into an 8x slot.

Is it a nVidia card, if it is then I'm 99% sure it will work. Since with my oc'ing/tweaking program I can change my mobos agp to 1x or 4x or 8x.

Though I don't see a reason why it wouldn't work even without changing the agp speed on the mobo.

And as I said if he is ur friend it is likely that he will give u ur money back if it doesn't work.

It will work, all you have to do is take the side off the computer, then you need to slide a little slider thats under the agp graphics port and then undo the securing secrew and slowly pull it up, then to put another one, you just reverse the steps to take on out. It will be compatible.
