I'm writing this review mainly in response to the review criticizing the card for not being able to attain a resolution higher than 1280 x 1024. I almost did not try this card because of that review, but in the end decided to give it a go anyway. In short, I am currently running this card at 1680 x 1050 resolution on a brand new Dell 20'' Widescreen UltraSharp monitor. Make no mistake, resoultions higher than 1280 x 1024 are attainable with this card.

I purchased the card to upgrade my computer, a Micron, Intel PIII with integrated graphics purchased in June of 2000. Despite my 150W PS, the card works great for my needs which include web browsing and basic text editing, etc. In addition, I especially like the DVI ability as many of the PCI cards I looked at only included VGA. The image on my LCD with DVI is awesome and it makes me wonder how I lived with CRT for so long. Without this card, the text on my LCD flickered whenever the processor faced a heavy workload (burning, Itunes, etc.); I do not have that problem anymore.

The only complaint I have about this card is that the fan is a little annoying (high-pitched), and my computer produces a little more heat nowadays. You do get used to the noise after awhile!

I would highly recommend this card for anyone in my situation who would like to upgrade an older system and alleviate some of the graphics work from the main processor, along with attaining an incredible image on a new LCD display. I tried two other cards--the PNY GeForce FX5200 256MB PCI card, and the Chaintech P-FX20 256MB GeForce FX5200 PCI card. The former was decent, but I did not like how it did not have DVI-support. In my opinion, if you your monitor supports it, DVI is the only way to fly.

Bought this to replace the 64mb onboard graphics in an Emachines computer setup as a PVR. Prior to installing this card my ATi HDTV Wonder tuner card would only work on one channel; now it works on all. Still some occasional stutter but I think it is related to my PVR software (BeyondTV 4.5). Despite what the first photo shows, this card does have a fan. The photos that show the red card are accurate. Great price if the rebate comes through.

Sucessful but somewhat painful. Diamond board I received did have fan and runs DirectX 9. Installation disc would not run automatically but did get the drivers installed. Then went to ATI and downloaded newer drivers and ATI Catalyst. I also downloaded the Diamond Tools Overclocking Utility. Card very stable and runs great. One old game I had I had to go to the VideoCard.txt file and add the 9250 and card ID. It had the 9200 but not the 9250. This was extremely painful for a rookie like me. Even that runs great now. Very satisfied with this old dinosaur card PCI bus card for the $$ paid.

I cannot review this item. I have to return it.

Images do not show the item received. The images show (multiple, different cards) with a PCI interface with notches indicating that it is compatible with both 5 volt and 3.3 volt PCI systems. The item received was not the item shown in any of the images. It had a PCI interface with a single notch indicating 5 volt system only. The description does not provide enough specification to distinguish.

Diamond Stealth ATI 9250 PCI 256MB Video Card ( S9250PCI256 )

This is a great video card. It installed effortlessly and ran with the drivers out of the box. The color was amazing, and the horsepower was incredible. It ran high end games with no problems.

Excellent product! Super fast shipping! Came with the installation disk, and worked out of the box! Had to update some of my system drivers to improve performance, but that was expected. Recommend DriverMax, it's free and works. Upgraded an IBM ThinkCentre 8183 (a $75 computer) with this video card and changed out the (x2) 512 MB memory sticks with (x2) 1024 MB. Now it has 2 gigabytes of RAM, and a 254 MB video card (came with an integrated 64 MB video). Now I meet system requirements for everything I want to use. Was difficult to locate a video card for a PCI only computer. This is the ticket, can't find a more highly recommended card for a PCI only computer. You have found what you are looking for here! I LOVE IT!!!

I still have a Compaq Presario Pentium III, I'm yet to upgrade but I got spoiled at work using a 21" monitor and decided to upgrade my monitor at home.

I bought a 22" widescreen for $200 at Bestbuy(Black Friday) and found out my old video card didn't support this monitor.... With the new card the graphics are great. Money well spent. My old card was only 16M also.

So bottom line is it's a great card for the money.
