Many thanks

Yes, for the most part they are backward compatible. But if you are buying one, get the retailer to confirm first of all.

yes as above.x8 is backward compatable with x4

just make sure the voltage of card and slot are compatable click here most agp slots in newish computers are universal so should not give you any problems.
