Ok, here is the deal. I would like to replace my 4X AGP card to an 8X AGP card. My ASUS A7S333 only supports 4X AGP. Will I have a problem running this card at all? I will replace the motherbpard in the near future for one that has 8X AGP on it, but For now I just would like to install the new 8X AGP card on my motherboard which only has a 4X AGP slot.

1-3% actual difference between 4x and 8x AGP. There is really no need to upgrade your motherboard. Just get the video card you will be fine.

Yeah all 8x AGP cards are backwardly compatable with 4x Mobos. Like goblin king said, you won't nottice much of an improvement stepping up to a 8x Mobo with the current generation of cards.
No need to change the mainboard at all ! Keep it for mobey saving ! Upgrade your BIOS and then they will works well with the new cards in the future !!!
