Do you mean if you upgraded the card froma 4x AGP to 8x AGP card? Very little.

Do you mean upgrade the Mobo to one that supports 8x AGP? Again the 8x AGP won't do much but other improvements might...

Explain your plans for a better answer...

if your video card supports 8X and your mobo doesnt, upgrading your mobo will make a big difference, but it does have to be a good video card.

yes my friends has 8x mobo but 4x gpu, what improvements would i gain from buying an 8x gpu?

Unless you are into gaming in a big way then you will not notice much difference.
