Default ATI Radeon 9250

My friend currently has a Dell Dimension 3000. Specs are:

Intel Celeron @ 2.4GHz
512MB PC3200 RAM
80GB Hard Drive
Integrated Graphics (Intell 88501 or something)
250w or 350w PSU (Can't remember)
3 PCI Expansion Slots
NO AGP OR PCI-E

First question is: will this comp be able to use the ATI Radeon 9250?

Second: If so, how much of a difference in games (counter strike, knight online, War Rock) performance will he see? will it be a significant jump? He doesn't want to use money without much improvement

Default Re: ATI Radeon 9250

i had the pci radeon 9250 before i got my new card. want my old 9250?

its actually not a bad card, it runs counterstrike 1.6 and counterstrike source also at full settings (but also depends on the rest of your setup. war rock played fine, and i have no clue what knight online is

what other games is he going to be playing? tell him to buy more ram

Well then, it's going to be better than integrated. he won't play really many games that are computer-intensive (like Crysis, FEAR, etc) they're all going to be like war rock/counterstrikeish. About you giving him the Radeon, you'll have to talk to him personally, so I'll ask him about it and give you his AIM or something if he does want it.
