What Graphics card do i have?

  Madboy 16:46 05 May 2004

My computer was custom built about 4 years ago, and im not sure what Graphics it has. Im assuming its Onboard, but not too certain. And im not going to take the case off.

I tried going to Start > Run > dxdiag to run DirextX Diagnosis, and all i could find was 4Mb Grpahics! If that is the case, is it really bad, and is it onboard? Also is there another way to check?

I dont play games, but im interested in buying an old Half Life game which im pretty sure could run on my PC, i think the Minimum requirements are 266 Pentium Processor, 128.o Mb Ram and im not sure on the grpahics. The first two i pass, i have a 533Mhz Intel Celeron, 128,0Mb Ram - but im not sure if the graphics would be ok.

Basically all im asking is, how do i find out what graphics i have, and what size? Without taking the PC apart
