Just a simple question:

Will it be possible to use a AGP 8x card like Matrox Parhelia on a AGP 4x
motherboard like APOX 4BEA?

Yes. A video card must support AGP4X/1.5V operation to be
used on a 4X motherboard. Most do, but a few of the newest
cards are AGP8X/0.8V-only and will not work.

APOX? I think you mean EPoX? :-)

Anyway, yes, it'll work fine. In 4x mode obviously, but that's a moot point
anyway, as the Parhelia isn't anywhere fast enough to need the extra
bandwidth.
