Default Radeon 9250 w/ Vista

Uh-oh. I just got this 9250 (128MB) card and when searching the ATI site for drivers, under Windows Vista I found nothing for the 9250 series.

http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html

Does this mean I can't use Vista with my card?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you can run Vista, but you can't run Aero Glass. As for drivers, the card is probably too old anyways.

The 9250 is like the FX5200, but has the DX8 from The Geforce 4. It's not a very good card. You could have got a 9500 at least.

There are no drivers for Aero. It depends on what video card you use. If you don't have a video card that meets the requirements for Aero Glass, it doesn't run Aero Glass.

It's my first video card so I have no idea about them.
