Talking queston about graphics card and BLUE SCREEN

so i got a new computer and i'm trying to play a game, atlantica online. i found in another site that i can't play it because i need a better graphics card. i got two radeon 9250 i think two it say's there is a secondary and there two hooked up in the back, but there a little differnt. so i got the graphics card out of my old computer(which it worked fine on that , it's a cmi8739/c3dx) i think it's only audio but it has a monitor female hook up on it. i treied just normal install and it gave me the blue windows screen and restated. i downloaded the software from and same thing. i downloaded software from the official site but it only gave me audio options. mabye it's not graphics and only a audio. is there anything i can get from my old computer i don't see anything. or anyway w/o buying a graphics card?

The cmi8739 is a sound card mate, not a graphics card.

And no, there's nothing you can pull out of your old computer that'll help. the only way you're gonna get a better graphics card is to buy one.
