Radeon 9550 Dell Dimension 4500 issue help please

Hi all,

Recived this old dimension 4500 from a friend after my old emachine crapped the bed on me. and i had to use my old ati 9550 from the old machine, as well as my old ram and ide cables ><.

im having an issue with the video card , i get this lag whenever i drag a window anywhere, or when i am using downscoll on the mouse etc.

i had a similar issue with my old e machine, i fixed this by installing the nvidia onboard drivers first, then the ati ones, and it worked perfectly, this machine is having the exact same issues, except near as i can tell, there IS no onboard video on this. ill post back when i check the bios to see if thats the issue....

any ideas?
