The card was working fine on my old mother board. I tried to power it again, and it worked...until I powered it off and booted it up again. same thing, smoke. What should I do?

All AGP based cards are backwards compatible, so an 8x card should operate at 4x 2x and 1x
however what is important is the voltage of your slot, you can tell by looking at the slot itself, the AGP slot may have a partition either 1/3 or 2/3rds down the slot, or may have no partition at all,
this slot partition is to prevent you from inserting a card of the wrong voltage.
If there is no partition in the AGP slot then the slot has a switchable voltage, and will automatically switch to the appropriate voltage, (on request from the graphics card AUTOMATIC)
so all you need to check is that the graphics card you buy has slots on the AGP interface that accomodate those on your board
according to the manual
This board has a 4x AGP slot
