    • A. When burning a video disc (or any other kind) you are transfering data to a file on the disc. The speed or memory of the video card is irrelevant, since the burner doesn't even use it. You will use the video controller while watching the video, later. I hope this helps.

    • A. If you are currently using onboard video -- this will provide almost 200MB more of video ram (since onboard robs 64MB from system RAM) It should speed things up considerably videowise. This is PCI slot ONLY. Not compatible w/PCI-Express.

    • A. If you mean watching videos: If they are both the same card, you have the proper onboard components, you can enable SLI and they will load twice as fast. If you mean burning videos onto a DVD, no. Also, I reccomend sticking with your current graphics card.

    • A. No, this card was outdated about 5 years ago. It's a relic and should not be considered. Plus, for burning you'd want either a faster processor or optical drive, not a video card.

    I ordered site-to-store and waited only 4-5 days, I was really excited when it came. It was super easy to install and my games look great! I had bought it for a very large computer game, and I got alot more than I expected. I would recommend this product to anyone in need of faster games, videos, etc.

    Very Good Video Card for Older PC

    The Diamond Radeon 9250 is a very good card for older PC's. I needed a card that was PCI compatible -- as my computer (DELL Dimension 2400) does NOT support PCI-Express. The price wasn't bad. I received it quickly and it was very easy to install. I went from onboard video(64MB) to 256MB. What little gaming I do is much faster and looks A LOT better (using DVI) Overall, a good deal.

    I am not able to use my AGP port, so I am forced to use the PCI slots only, for video. This board is perfect for the system I am putting it into. It does not play games or other cutting edge applications. This board will do the jobs that I need done, perfectly. I would recommend it to anyone else in a similar situation.

    We are quite pleased with the performance. Made playing the SIMS game so enjoyable now for my child. It came quickly with Site-to-Store also.

    Dell Tech support helped me pick my new Graphics Card thank you I did not no about PCI and PCIE. The Stealth Radeon 9250 256 MB DDR PCI Cinematic 2D 3D Graphics Card was the perfect upgrade for my Dimension. I recently purchased a 22" monitor from Dell (Which is also awesome) and with the new Graphics Card my computer and monitor are working perfect.All ways great ordering from Dell

    I was expecting a card without a fan because of the photo in the online add. I tried this card anyway. It loaded good and ran fine for about a day or two and then the monitor would occasionally go black. After four days the fan got noisy and the monitor would keep flashing on and off black out screens every other second.

    I have a computer that I put together a number of years ago, The video card went out on it so I looked around for one and the best price and excatly what I was looking for was at Walmart. I never knew that Walmart carried parts for your PC. Works just like I expected it to, remember to follow the instructions as to when to turn off your old video card and when to connect your new one.

    the prodcut was easy to find and arrived at the store quicker than we expected. the video card was easy for my husband to install and everything we needed came with the card. my husband said it is a better card than what we had and the price was great, we didn't have to spend a fortune. overall we like the product and will use the name brand again.

    I couldn't afford a new computer so I wanted to upgrade mine a little until I could. This video card has helped improve my computer's performance for just a little money. The card works as advertised.
