is it a PCI card?

it means, that the PCI clock is 33Mhz and Data Through Put of 133MB/s

where the AGP 4X (your board must have at least) is clocked at 266Mhz and peak throughput of 1GB/s data.

see the difference your self.

I think it can be installed in both AGP and PCI slots (a little confution on ATi's own site, as they mentioned (OR) )

see as if it can be installed into AGP, (if the PCI version isnt seperately made). else get rid of it and get the AGP version.

are you having the tiny PC? as small form factors like Dell Dimension 4700C series comes in PCI slots only. (I have a similar thin IBM Netvista at home, with no AGP slot)

Intel Core2Quad 2.66Ghz 12MB L2-Cache

I don't know any cards that fit into PCI and AGP, the two ports are positoned diferently and have different shape/pins. And, I wouldn't be surprised if the 9250 would lag on CS.
Samsung QX410 notebook <-- lol, I'm always on the go these days :(

I would advise upgrading your mboard before buying a new card (agp)
ASUS A7N8X-X mainboard
Athlon XP 3200+
1 GB Ram
120 GB HD (IDE)
250 GB HD (IDE)
128 MB Radeon 9800 PRO with custom H/S fan
8 x DVD Writer + DVD ROM
8 Meg ADSL (with ****ty ISP Bulldog)
Mystify Mamba mouse
And still ****ty fps in CS Source.
