The Radeon 9250 256mb PCI card is a great card for around $85. - $115. dollar price range (I paid around $160. for it 3 years ago. Compared to $199. For the AGP version of this card). Out of all the graphic cards I've owned, the Radeon 9250 256mb PCI runs the coolest. I never had any overheating problems associated with it.
I recommend this card if you are: 1.) Low on funds and want a decent graphics card. Since AGP cards run a lot more in price. 2.) If you don't have a AGP slot on your motherboard and want to experience 3-d gaming with out all the lace and foo-foo effects associated with higher end cards. 3.) Want something better than built-in motherboard graphics. Just remember to update to the latest drivers at the ATI website. If you decide to use it as your main graphics card.
FFXI Online runs great on defaults. Smooth game play. If you turn up the graphics, it tends to get a bit choppy.
Secondlife plays well on defaults.
World of Warcraft plays well on defaults with smoothness, no lag, or choppiness. If you turn up the graphics, it tends to get a bit choppy.
EQ2 works great on default settings. Smooth and no choppiness. If you turn up the graphics it will chop up on you.
PSU is a bit choppy on this card. The opening movie and offline mode mini movie clips chop up a bit. But the game is still playable and works well at normal default settings. PSU runs a lot smoother in low res mode with the card. The in-game videos are choppy period. There is no fixing it with this card.
I had no problems with installation other than to make the proper BIOS adjustments which essentially consisted of setting the system to recognize PCI instead of AGP as the primary video. One unusual problem I encountered was the computer system clock reset itself to 1990 for some reason. This caused a lot of problems until I went back into the BIOS and reset the clock to the current date/time.
Performance wise, this card is a dream. I can now use a DVI cable (white ends) to connect to my monitor instead of D-SUB (blue ends). This, of course, results in a better picture on my LCD monitor. I can also play games that I couldn't play before. The games that I did play before look so much better and play so much faster that it shocked me initially to see such a performance gain.
My internet surfing speed has also noticeably improved. I use FireFox, and before I installed this card it was almost impossible to switch between tabs, or scroll in a tab, when another tab was loading. While this card hasn't eliminated the problem, the tabs do load faster and I can now scroll while a tab is loading.
The CATALYST software that came with this card is also very useful. I can now easily change the monitor resolution from an icon in the system tray in addition to being able to rotate the monitor. There are a number of other software features that enable the user to tweak the display, but I haven't done anything with them yet.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the performance of this card.
