Why do you doubt CPU-Z?

This is a desktop computer, correct? You could open the case and, following normal static precautions, inspect the surface of the motherboard to find the BRAND name and Model # printed on the board.

The NVIDIA site offers up Video card drivers and motherboard drivers. nForce is chip-set drivers and GeForce is Video card drivers. nforce 8200 would be your motherboard chip-set drivers. Have a good look at your motherboard for any silk screened lettering that may tell you what specific model it is.

You can use Belarc Advisor to determine CPU’s details, i.e. motherboard, HHD type, and manufacturer, etc.

You can also go to this page at Intel's site below, select your version of Win 7, and download the processor identification utility. http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Prod...=2643&lang=eng

Did you try Option 2: Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products, on the NVIDIA site?
