Right click on My Computer in the dialog box select properties and it's right there on the general tab.

Another option is AdAware , it will give you loads of info about your computer.
Please let us know if your tried aida32 and belarc.

a better way is to go to your RUN option.
type
dxdiag
the windows that pops up will tell you how much ram and your exact processor type and speed.
if you notice the tabs at the top you will see a video tab where you can find out what kind of video you have with how much ram also.

Yep I saw that post and know the program (belarc) but i like using an option that does not require me to download and/or install anything on my machine.
the fastest way to your processor speed/type is with dxdiag.
