why did you get the 9250? its slower and has less features than your integrated xpress graphics! if possible, take it back.
if you want to upgrade, get a pci-express based card. an x1600xt or x1650pro would be nice $110 upgrades over the integrated graphics:
x1600xt, $110 + ship less $20 mir: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102060

Hello,I recently bought a Radeon 9250 256MB PCI graphics card for my computer. Unfortunately, it only runs Direct X 8.1. This does not fit into many games of today's world,and also causes some programs to run slow (for example, Google Video runs slow for some strange reason, Flash have poor refresh rate, some games just goes down in refresh rate).
This is my question: Is there a possible way to run my integrated graphics card (an ATI Radeon Xpress 200, with 128MB,and is Direct X9), and the PCI graphics card at the same time, so they can dually run under one monitor, and adding up to a total of 384MB of video, like how normal RAM is run?
If not possible, any way to fix my refresh rate of my monitor? I'm pretty sure Google Video doesn't rely on Direct X9,so I think it's my refresh rate. I mean,for my computer, it's a bitter sweet. In one corner,some old games run faster (BZFlag, Wolfenstein, WarRock), while in newer games (like Project Snowblind)go lag like molasses. I did not have any problems with this before I had this video card.
