That should meet your needs just fine. I have had troubles in the past with ATI drivers, I own a 9200 personally and could not stand it, in order to download the updated drivers, I had to download the entire control center and that is a huge program. May I suggest a nice, easy Nvidia based card? Here ya go: - MSI NX6200AX-TD128LF GeForce 6200 128MB 64-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card - Retail

The 9250 is a good card, especially for only what you want it for. Same with the 6200.

Actually, ATI drivers have really gotten better. Plus, for such an older card, I would recommend using Omega drivers for it. Omega Drivers has drivers for both ATI and Nvidia. - Home of the ATI & NVIDIA Omega Drivers. Home
