My GF2Ti has survived time spent in AGP 1X slots before. I believe it is standard for AGP 4X cards to be backwards compatible with AGP 1X. AGP 8X cards are only backwards compatible with AGP 4X. I think it is the Intel 845 chipset where I read that trying an AGP 1X/2X card in it will damage the motherboard chipset, specifically the Memory Controller Hub (MCH) chip.
But why anyone would spend that kind of money on a new motherboard like that and then try to use an old 3.3 volt card is beyond me.

I found a good link, even though it is Tom's Hardware:
