AGP stands for Accelerated Graphics Port.
2x,4x and 8x AGP refers to the maximum bandwidth that the graphics card can work with.
Oldish cards work on 2x or 4x while the latest cards use 8x but to use 8x your motherboard MUST support it and if you haven't got a modern motherboard you may be out of luck!

AGP is gradually being replaced with PCI Express just the same as 64 bit processors are gradually replacing 32 bit ones.
