3 out of 5 eggs works fine... but not for linux video 09/20/2011

This review is from: HIS Radeon 9250 H925H128E1TOPN 128MB 64-Bit DDR PCI Video Card

Pros: this works, is PCI and helps put new life in old computers. Even comes with drivers. Good 2d for basic computing

Cons: drivers/support.
at least for Linux, AMD no longer supports this chipset. In Linux you use the open source driver which is ok for computing but terrible for video. I had to return this and get an old NVIDIA card to do the same job since they offer more support. I bought this to turn an old shuttle with a PCI slot into a media player, just 720p video. The card could output 720p just fine for a desktop and applications but the card just died on video, 720 or even standard 480i. It was the rivers not the card.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what the support/drivers offered for windows are. A CD came with it but I'm pretty sure that at most it might have Vista drivers. I did see that it had the XP, 2000 drivers. Just keep that in mind.
3 eggs if you have the right setup for the drivers, 0 if you don't.
