Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Did you search and read ANY other threads on video, graphics, Radeon, etc? Did the Dell have an AGP slot on it and you put the video card in the PCI slot next to it? That is a No Go on a lot of computers. Did you turn off the integrated video when you installed the video card? I'm guessing not.
All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....
