I currently have the RC1 on my machine. When I got the computer with XP it
only had a integrated 64mb video card. I wanted to explore the Vista graphics
features as I work in IT and need to know Vista before it is rolled out to
I find the Radeon 9250 and notice it has 256Mb Ram and Directx9. I thought
this was what Vista required. I install it and Windows Vista cannot find the
drivers. I go online and find that ATI are not supporting Vista drivers for
this video card. I only bought it Thursday.
I am now going to return the card for the updated 9550 card. The funny thing
is, is that it is only ┬ú4 more.
Vista is starting to be a pain as far as hardware is concerned. I thought I
was buying a resonable, good value graphics card. Obviously not. I feel sorry
for the people that have a graphics card which seems up to the job but does
not work with Vista.
I will let you all know how I get on with the new one.
