Hello I work for a non profit agency and we were donated 4 dell pentium 4 pcs. The hard drives had been removed prior to donation.

They all have video cards and no 2 appear to the same. It does not say what they are anywhere on the card. I do see the nividia logo stamped on the board but that is it.

Can anyone give me advice and how I might go about identifying these cards to see if they are worth keeping??

Thanks for all the help.

so, the cards are not in a running computer ,correct .
without numbers on them and not installed in a working computer it gonna be hard to identify them .
my experience with video cards is that there are numbers on all of them somewhere ??
any chance of posting picture of the cards , both sides of the card for us to see.

also ,if you install them in a working computer it likely windows will have drivers for them ,to function ,if the old P4's are worth keeping its also likely that the 4 cards will be fine too
