Yes, I am running a Radeon 9500Pro 8 x AGP card in my Asus A7A266-E 4 x AGP motherboard.

I did have a Geforce 3 Ti 200 and inserting the Radeon doubled the 3D Mark 2001 benchmark score.

8x agp is a max it will still work at 4x agp
in fact looking at 9700 and 9800 radions myself
and one web site compared 4x and 8x the speed increase is very low so you wont miss much
