I don't know what software you use for determining your system specs, but if you purchased an previously unopened box, I'd say to count your blessings.

Look in the device manager. if it says 9800pro uve got 9800pro, if it says 9800 uve got 9800.

@StillLearnin
Does HJT tell u stuff like that?

shadow689: Count your blessings is the same as " some people have ALL the luck!". In other words, count yourself extremely lucky- Most of the time someone buys a re-packaged(unknowingly) one and gets a lower quality card much to their chagrine! By the way, is this a "Built by ATI" (pure ATI) or a "Powered by ATI'(3rd party) card? Here's the link to Aida32. Download the Enterprise version, then run it and look under Display. Link:

Whitestar: Maybe it's because it's so late at night, but refresh me on what HJT stands for please!

HJT will not do 'stuff like that'. HijackThis examines certain key areas of the Registry and Hard Drive and lists their contents. It is a general browser hijacker detecter and remover. It reports no *hardware*. It is best to use StillLearnin's Aida 32 link.
