In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Q45 Express Chipset are significantly better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The Q45 Express Chipset was released over three years more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the Q45 Express Chipset is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon 9250 when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Radeon 9250 has 128 MB video memory, but the Q45 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon 9250 has 4 Shader Processing Units but the Q45 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel Q45 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Intel Core 2 Quad/Core 2 Duo CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA X4500.
Various Intel Chipsets come with the Intel GMA X4500 but this one (and the Q43) seem to deliver the best performance. However, due to its characteristics (e.g. Shared Memory) the performance is still very limited but might be enough to play today's games at low or medium settings excluding, however, very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher II, that are probably unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
Note 1: Intel GMA X4500 does support DirectX 10 but even the most forgiving games might be unplayable due to the demand level.
The Radeon R200 is the second generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The architecture features 3D acceleration based upon Microsoft Direct3D 8.0 and OpenGL 1.3, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R100 design. The GPU also includes 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 'R200' refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products.
