I've heard that the voltages that certain cards run at wont allow you to.
yes you can...

problem is there are different types of agp slots... you need to have a certain voltage supported to run some video cards...

just make sure you know what voltage your agp supports and what is required by the video card before making the purchase...

if there is no voltage problem... you have no problem running an 8x card in a 4x slot... :)

I do it :D
