AGP boards work without problems with OpenBSD. The text console only
uses the VGA I/O ports to talk to the board and AGP boards are still
VGA compatible.

XFree86 3.3.2 supports a wide range of AGP boards too, so if you pick
one supported board, you won't have problems to run X. Check
<http://www.xfree86.org/3.3.2/README3.html#3> for the list of
supported boards.
