    Easiest way without downloading software is to do start->run->dxdiag. That will show you most relevent information.

    Windows does not really care what kind of physical RAM you have, thanks to HAL. DDR is addressed the same way SDRAM is.

    Other option is to visit Support.Gateway.com. They have a "system information tool" that will enumerate alot of things for you.

    I made a program using WMI that does the same thing. I can send it to you if you want. Shows all kinds of weard junk, shows every piece of hardware, version, model, type etc attached to the motherboard, including the motherboard itself, and devices like keyboards, monitors, etc. It displays a list of information and also draws a hiearichal graph using GDI+ that shows what devices are connected to what, the motherboard being the lowest item on the list. It was a stupid college project. Its kind of like a graphical version of Device Manager, with a little more info.

    Let me know if you want it. You can have the source code too if you want it, its in MC++ but I don't have time to help you figure out the code, so that you'll have to do on your own.
