Similar to my last question but how do i tell what model Graphics Card i have in my computer.

I brought a new pc but left all the discs and everything back at another house and i need to get it up and running. I have tryed CPU-Z but that doesnt seem to do your video card.

Or Type DXDIAG into Run of your computer, then click display

That way, no need to download any software that you will not use again...

I have tryed cpu z as well as directx diagnostics and the problem that you get is that when the driver isnt installed it doesnt give you the details of what model Graphics Card you have.

Well...Nvidia and ATI have both drivers that suit every card, so you know whether its a Nvidia or ATI right?
