Hi,
The big differance between the two is the onboard video uses you're system memory to run & you can increase the memory for the card but that will take away system memory. What type of system memory are you using? SDRAM or DDR?
The Radeon 7000 will use its own memory freeing you're system memory. If this is you're only choice I would suggest the Radeon 7000.
I can give you a third choice which blows away both graphics cards (combined).
Here is one. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3570059&CatId=318

How about a big list. of 4x cards able to run today's game & directX 10.

The choice is your's.

Good Luck!
Have fun...

Could my graphic card fix by Gecube?? i bought it in 2005... is the grantee still good???


Not likely... most warranties are for defect in manufacturing and last one year up to maybe 3 years and only with proof of purchase showing the date.

Need drivers


For this video card you can get the driver for win 98, me, or xp from here:
http://www.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDHomePage.aspx
on right side, download drivers, choose from drop lists:
component cathegory: graphics operating system: xp -- or -- win 98, me product line: radeon product model: radeon 9250 series
then press on view results and you will get a new page with the download link for
catalyst software suite x.xx

No drivers needed for Windows vista or windows 7. Since this is and old card it is not directly supported from manufacturer, but ussually vista or win7 will install automatically a generic driver that allows you to use the card. Might need to change resolution and color dept after installing on vista or win7.
Good luck on setting up your card!!

I have the T4852 w/ Intel Extreme Graphics card. I just bough an LG flat screen monitor(W2361VG), and I was wondering "should I replace the graphics card? Would it make the pixels on the screen much...


No, your pixels aren't going to improve.  Match the resolution to the native resolution of the display (usually listed right on the settings menu) or the recommended Bayer equivalence.

What a graphics card would improve would be CUDA and videogame performance; that is, photo and video editing (or computation-intensive software programmed to take advantage of nVidia or AMD video processing past the GeForce8800 era cards) would get more responsive and capable with the change in the card, as would Far Cry 2 or a similarly demanding videogame.  Office 2007, OpenOffice (so far,) and Peggle would not improve at all, and your carbon footprint would increase with no benefit other than slicker virtual desktop action.

The fancy videocards draw tens of watts when doing no computation and showing a blank screen (i.e. idling,) so there's no need for them just to show YouTube or fansubs.  Encoding is another story.

I don't really have a problem I just want to upgrade the cpu but don't have a support list. I want to put in the best possible one but don't know which one it will support.


Here are the tips on how to upgrade and support to you CPU.

The 8400GS isn't much better than the onboard graphics in your Emachines, and the 7200 is NO better than your onboard.

If you want a noticeable improvement in performance, get at least a 9500GT, which is the highest card your Emachines can run on its stock power supply.

Any card more powerful than that, you are going to need a new power supply.

This 9500GT is below $50: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/…

No support for onboard graphics for demension 2350 installing win 7


Depending on your RAM capacity which is max. 1 GB I doubt whether your integrated graphics will support Win7. Try installing WINXP or VISTA(doubtful) as OS. Else go for a graphics card with inbuilt memory if you want to install Win7.............sodeep

External graphic card


no, if your notebook has onboard graphics, you can only benefit by fitting more memory, so as the notebook can use the 64mb maximum without stalling your notebook, but the graphics will be no better, unless you have a corrupt driver, you will need to visit the notebooks manufacturer web site for any updates.
