If the repalcement card fits into the slot it will work. Compare the new with the old one.

An AGP 4X/8X card will work, but not an 8X card. Compare the card (or a picture of it) to the slot on your motherboard. If the pin section of the card has 2 notches in it, it will work. If it has only one but it's in the same place as the divider in your slot, it will also work. However, many 8X cards are designed mainly for 8X slots. To be safe, get a 4X/8X card, which is characterized by those two notches.

Just try to insert each of the cards into the slot and see if it works, Observe the slot and the bottom of the card and see if they match. Don't use excessive force. Very simple.
