Hi
Bought my son Rainbow Six Vegas for Christmas, but on installing found my 128mb Radeon 9800 Pro not good enough, so have to upgrade. At same time I want to add some extra RAM and Hard Drive memory. A computer guy at work says he'll do it for me, as I'm not that au fait with inside of computers, but he said I need to find out a few things about my system first, like how many slots I have spare and whether the motherboard uses AGP or PCI Express. I can't seem to find this level of system information displayed anywhere on my pc. Can anyone tell me where I might find it displayed, or of a suitable system diagnostics tool I can download that would tell me the answers to these questions. I'm running XP pro.
cheers

for your memory, use cpu-z click here

Open the spd tab, use the drop down box for different slots and post the results back here.
