    If it has a fan, try using rivatuner to overclock it.

    lower the texture quality with riva tuner or Catalyst Control Panel

    force shader 2.0 or 1.1 to achieve increased performance at a visual price. Also use rivatuner for this.

    The 9250 PCI is okay but if you want gaming with a PCI slot, get a X1550 or a HD2400 =D

    I guess you're SOL then =(

    Only way to get the most out of it, Overclock your 9250 =D
