Can I put an AGP 8x Video card in an AGP 4x motherboard slot?

Hi, I would appreciate some guidance. I have an oldish Intel D850MV
motherboard which I believe has an AGP 4X slot. I need to run a Windows XP
application which requires Directx 9.0b. All the video cards I've seen which
say they support 4X/8X are only DirectX 8.1 compatible whilst all the ones
which are DirectX 9.0 compatible say the requirement is for a motherboard
with an AGP 8X slot.

Can I buy a DirectX 9.0 compatible AGP 8X video card and slot it into my AGP
4X motherboard?

I know I wont get the full 8X performance but for it just to work would be
fine! Thanks.
