No, the difference between 8x and 4x in games are a few percent, varying depending on the game. Definitely not worth upgrading for.

Yeah, I have to agree there. AGP 8x hasn't worked out to be much more than a marketing gimmick since any speed increases really aren't noticeable to the end user.

If you were going to upgrade your mobo at this point, get one with PCI Express, which will be the new standard for video cards for the forseeable future. AGP of any flavor is definitely on the way out.
