I have a m-board with a 266mhz fsb,the agp slot is a 4x.could i fit a 8x card such as a geforce 4 ddr,or would a faster card not work in my primitive slot?

AGP 4x is not a primitive slot. It's only one step behind the very latest, and many new motherboards still use AGP 4x slots.

Yes - you can fit an AGP8x card into an AGP4x slot - and I bet you couldn't even tell the difference!
