SIW will tell you all sorts of useful information about your computer - including what graphics card you have.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Or you can right click you right click your desktop, Properties, then on the far right "Settings" The nin the middle under the tab "display" it will show your video card name.

You could also get alot more info just as easy by clicking your start bar, then "run", and in the textfield type dxdiag and press enter. If it prompts you for permission to look online, I guess you could, but you don't need to. After pressing Enter with dxdiag typed in, a screen will pop up with general info on your PC, click at the top the "display" tab and it will show you everythign on your video card.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
