Default Radeon™ 256MB 9250 PCI Video Card???

ya i have that same card, it works great on games like half life and counterstirke 1.6. im not sure how well it will perform on hgiher end games, because people say that its not good for really graphics intese applications. but it definately is a good budget card for when you have no agp.

edit: omg! i cant believe this. i paid 100 for it and now its 40? urg, that makes me mad

ok, as i always say about this card, it rocks. best in pci. plays fear on medium at 30-40 fps.

edit: the only downside is theres no pixel shader 3 (or whatever the newest one is)

you should be able to run those games, maybe not at THE highest settings, but you will get way better results than you are getting now, definately
