5 out of 5 eggsit helps....

Pros: adds decent graphics to an old system with built-in video.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: while these are "cons", they arent the fault of the card. Its a PCI card, so dont expect excellent performance even though its a decent chipset and has 256mb of ram. Also, this card wont work in just any old motherboard. It wouldnt work in 2 older Dell systems(dont know who manuf those boards) and wouoldnt work in 2 PCchips motherboards, the systems wouldnt even boot no matter what the BIOS settings. I believe this to be an issue with the card having that much ram on it, but am not sure. Anyway, as I said, this isnt the cards fault, when it worked, it worked fine, so I gave it a "5".

2 out of 5 eggsVideo Trouble

Pros: It kind of works with Server 2003 and 1900x1200 resolution.

Cons: Every now and then my video resolution deteriorates. Text "yellows" and images turn grainy. Some video links bring this on immediately. I'm not sure what the problem is. Over-heating? If I power off for a while it goes away. I'll replace it once it dies for good.

4 out of 5 eggsWhat I was hoping for

Pros: Well it fixed all of my graphics issues without a single problem added. Excellent buy. Definitely got what I was expecting

Cons: It is VERY noisy!! This fan is like a mini lawnmower, but you get used to it after a while.

Other Thoughts: It's really not that complex to install. Just go in the BIOS (F2) and turn off onboard stuff, then do Safe Mode and DISABLE the onboard graphics and you're set. Works like a charm.

3 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: Runs counterstrike, source, call of duty, and COD2 on high resolution perfect (1280x1024). The fan cools it well.....

Cons: ....but it is really noisy, after about 3 weeks, so i just rigged up a different fan, and it works fine. I know it says 256MB memory and 128-bit but i got a 128MB, 64-bit. Also i got the wrong driver, which is no big deal, I just dl'ed it off PowerColor's website. It took me a while to get it dialed in, but it's good now.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for PCI

Pros: Good card for PCI motherboard (*NOT* PCI x16!). If you don't want to spend the $ to upgrade your MB/CPU but still want to play some of the recent games, this might be a good option for you.

Cons: The card does not fit securely into the PCI slot and will occassionally wiggle out, causing the screen to lock up or black out. This may be a problem with my slot and not the card. I can't tell. Make sure you wedge this card in there good and deep and secure the screws tightly before using.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card so I could run Doom 3 on my computer and it works fine on med-low settings @ 1024x768 res. It also runs World of Warcraft reliably at the same resolution but tends to get choppy in major cities or in battlegrounds, especially if you move around a lot like I do. Still, fantastic card for PCI if that's all you've got to work with.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of If not the best for PCI

Pros: This is probably the best PCI card you can get. It is a great option for Dell users and so who are stuck with PCI or onboard. I can play GW at Med-high settings at 1024x800 with this at about 40 FPS. That is quite amazing for PCI, if PCI is your only option go for it!

Cons: It is still only PCI therefore its still slow. Dont even think about playing anything new, it wont even boot up games like BF2. But i knew what i was getting when i bought this.

Other Thoughts: System

Intel Celeron 2.80ghz
1 GB of DDR-400 RAM
17in monitor at 1024x800

4 out of 5 eggsGreat value for old PCs, but takes some know-to

Pros: Plays all but the newest games. Low price. Great value for old PCs!

Cons: Had to download correct drivers from ATI web site. Not plug-n-play in my old HP Pavilion. I had to checkmark one BIOS setting and in Windows uncheck the old graphics card.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to do lots of web searches for "Radeon 9250 Your PC Model" to get installation tips.

5 out of 5 eggsradeon 9250

Pros: Runs most games on medium to high settings. I can run Call Of Duty 2 Demo completely maxed out (then again, the demo), Halo maxed out at 640x480, Half-Life 2 at 800x600 maxed out, same with Counter-Strike Source, around 30fps. Plays GTA: SA at 640x480 with full AA at around 30-40fps. Unreal Tournament 2004 at 1280x1024.

Overclockable. I used an overclocking utility and got it up to 293/221 (293/442 effective) stable, with a passive heatsink, no artifacts.

128-bit interface, very good for an old PCI card.

Passive heatsink. This thing is completely silent.

Runs Vista Pre-RC1 wonderfully, completely stable, had no problems with video card so far.

Cons: Incredibly slow with today's games (don't even try Oblivion). No Shader Model 2.0, No Vista AERO support, so I end up using the Vista Basic Interface. No DDR2 memory like X1300. Not a DirectX 9-native card.

Don't get this card unless you're stuck with PCI, which many of us Dell users are.

Other Thoughts: Considerable card for PCI, but for only ~$30 more, you can pick up a Radeon X1300 that has the capability to run most games on low to medium settings today, not to mention it's SM 3.0 compliant, PCI, as well as Vista AERO, and is current-generation, unlike this Radeon 9250.

- 3.0GHz P4 Processor w/HT
- 1.25GB RAM
- Windows XP Home SP2 + Windows Vista Pre-RC1 Dual-Boot
