I looked into this very same thing yesterday on behalf of another member and the best description I could find was this
which from what I can gather means that when MB manufacturers were moving away from AGP slots to pci-e x16 slots in the 1990s they utilized the AGP MBs by putting the slightly larger pci-e x16 slot over the AGP printed circuit on the MB, basically it is the slot that is x8 not the card and as your card is a pci-e x16 v2.0 it is backward compatible with the v1 slot on your MB.
PCI-8x cards are just AGP8x cores bridgechipped to PCI-E.
