shouldn't be a problem. I've had my AGP 8x Radeon 9500 running in my AGP 1x slot of my old P2, ran fine.

just beware that old mainboards may not have the enough power output for the new display card, my experience is that a P2L97 (440LX) and a GeForce 2 Pro..the system would just halt with this combination (not enough power out from the AGP slot to the card)
otherwise, everything will be fine

No way a 3DFX collector...just a 3DFX die Hard Player~~
