PC hardware scanner

Is there any free software which tells you what your hardware configuration is? Things like what graphics ports you have on your motherboard - PCI-E or AGP, what speed max ram your MB takes (and what is currently installed?), if you have SAT or SATA 2 HD ports, what cpu socket etc. I've got Belarc but thats only software scanning.

Thanks VoG™, but I can't install it. It tries to connect to me an sql server database (?) even when I uncheck the database option.
