Checking my graphics card specs

I know how to check my CPU, RAM and hard drive, but how do I check what graphics card I'm running? It doesn't seem to come up when I check my system.

You can download CPU-z for basic specs of your GPU, or GPU-z for thorough information.

Speccy - System Information - Free Download should provide all that and a bit more.

Go to RUN and type dxdiag. It will show you all the info you need about your card.

And some that may be misleading.

Im pretty sure, for example, that the physical VRAM on my GTX 680 is less than the 4GB shown as total memory in DXDIAG.

That with added Vram 1gb + So much V ram is the reason you are see-ing more then 4 Gb check out your WEI detailed info it will show you how much dedicated ram is available also i seen someone else running a GTX 580 but it said intel hd graphics on Unigene heaven
