Unlikely.  The oldest generation of cards that can run OpenCL are HD 4xxx series.  I don't think AMD made any AGP cards of that series.  Anything older is incapable of running OpenCL kernels (no programmable unified shaders) so can't hash at any speed.

Nope, amd DID make AGP cards of the 4k series. Namely 4650 and few more i think.

Throw one of these in a PCI slot (or fill as many PCI solts as you like), use a regular mining-suited PCIe card and call it a day.

Any money spent getting a system running using PCI>PCIe adapters or AGP video cards would be better spend on a cheap motherboard with 2+ PCIe 16x slots powered either by an amd sempron or an intel celeron cpu

If you found that funny or something i said useful i always appreciate spare change

Yeap I totally agree.  The PCI-PCIe aren't cheap
