8x in a 4x slot surely works at 4x ?????????

It will work but only 4X.

" Will a AGP 8X graphic card opperate "

Yes

Will it run at full speed?

No just at 4X.

Most AGP 4x motherboards can be used with an 8x graphics card (the speed increase is not actually linear) but, as pointed out correctly, the 8x card will operate at 4x.

It's not possible for a 4x slot to run at 8x...:-)
