Just a similar problem to report... the PCChips M810L mobos will not run hardly any of the nVidea GeForce series of cards unless the AGP rate is cut back to 1x.
Fortunately, the only thing that the reduction in AGP rate affects is the speed at which a game, or program, loads from the HD or CD into the video cards memory. It'll take longer at 1x than at 8x... Doh!
Once loaded, then it is the speed of the video card itself that limits the FPS.
The 8x thing doesn't really do much of anything in the real world, but the marketing boys are just having a field day with it.
