Hello geeks to go i foundthis page and im amazed will for sure tell everyone about this site. Ok well im on Dimension 2350 and i need a graphics card. Ive been looking at the radeon 9250 for its performance/price ratio. I just need to know if all standard pci slots are the same. Dell says the dimension has a 120 pin pci slot. I could not find the pin count on the radeon 9250. So are all pci standard slots the same? Also i didnt not see a power req for the radeon. Im pushing 200 watts on the comp i know old comp. I just want to make sure that everything will work. Thanks for the help I truly appreciate it. here is comp specs from dell http://support.dell....ecs.htm#1101572 thanks for the help

All standard PCI cards fit into any standard PCI slot. You just can't put a standard PCI card into a PCI express slot or the other way around.

Oh yeah, welcome to GTG and spread the word.

I own the Radeon 9250 pci card
It fits in any regular pci slot, and i also have only a 250 watt power supply and i run it fine with 2 dvd rom drives and 2 hdds so u shouldn't have much of a problem.
Warning!! however, the radeon 9250 is only direct x 8.1 fully compatible. It runs on direct x 9.0c but i have had problems with some stuff in the past. ATI will not be making a patch to their driver for this so i would hesitate to recommend this to anyone. That being said it is an ok card and does provide good quality frame rates at 1024x 768 res. If you plan on using it to play games like cod2 or half-life 2 i would recommend not getting it. If you are looking for a graphics card from radeon, visiontek just released the x1300 for pci at 256 mb. You can get it from tigerdirect for about 130 dollars canadian. It supports direct x9.0c and it is the card i was gonna buy before i decided to just go buy a new mobo with pci-express.
