If you plug your monitor in near the top of your pc (tower system) then its built in. If you plug it in at the bottom around alot of similar looking slots it probs is seperate.

The way to tell if it's intergrated is take the side off the pc, and have a look. Follow the lead from monitor and have a look where it goes. If it's not into a PCI/AGP slot/card then it's on-board.

Right click 'My Computer' select properties and then click the device manager tab. Left click the '+' next to display adapters. This will give the name of the graphics card (the driver it uses anyway). Type it into Google or post it on this forum for more info.

everest is a great wee tool for info on just about anything you ever wanted to know about your system. click here download, install and click 'computer/summary' and look at the info listed for motherboard, chipset and display adapters. things highlighted in blue are links to the manufacturers of all your hardware to get more info and drivers and updates etc.

ps. if you dont want to install any software but know the make and model of your computer just look up its specs on the manufacturers website maybe. everest will probally tell you more than the manufacturers website will though :-)
