8k5a2 AGP question

hello, i got old epox 8k5a2 mobo with agp x4, gpu voltage is locked at 1.5v in bios... now i am planning to get x8 agp video card, like geforece 6600 agp, but those are only agp x8... many ppl told me that it should work anyway, will be just a bit slower, but i need to be sure sience i dont want to break anything... so can i stick x8 agp video card into x4 slot on my 8k5a2? or should i get diff mobo/video card? thanks for answers

shoudn't be a problem.agp x8 (agp 3.0)is backwards compatible.its the older x2 cards you have to be carefull with.

I have been running the raid version of this board for over 2 years and it has run fine with a 9700pro which I believe is an 8x so I think you should be fine
