Are there any software that displays hardware specifications of the followings?

Sata or Pata or IDE drive of my hard drives even external ones, also their speed.
What type of ram I have, eg DDR, DDRII, DDRIII, and how big they are.

because I went to the windows system tools/system information, apart from the xp info, I don't understand what the hardware part has listed.

Also is there a quick way to know if my hard drives are IDE or SATA?
Thanks

Try SIW.

thanks alot, I checked for my external HDD, which is an ATA/133? I read Wikipedia, it says its a SATA 1.0........which I don't really understand. It's not really faster than my IDE/SATA primary drive, is this because of the limitations with USBs?

SIW, you beat me to it! you can also try Belarc PC audit a free utility that will provide hardware info.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

Hardware information programs have to be taken with a grain of salt - they work by reading the information that's stored about each device/program - so if it's stored in different places, or if it written differently in different places, things won't add up. Using several tools will usually let you figure out what's what within your system.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
