To find out the amount of RAM you can use in several ways. To view all of the information on the card using standard Windows tools, you can run the Dxdiag utility base. For this you need to enter the menu "start" choose "Run" (in Vista and Windows 7 you can enter the name in the search field), and in the appeared window enter Dxdiag. Starts a program that displays a lot of technical parameters, including the amount of memory and type. Also in Windows 7 and Vista to view information about the memory you can click the right mouse button on the desktop, select "screen Resolution". In the window that opens click on link "advanced settings". Opens the properties screen of the video card, where in one of the first points and will specify the amount of memory. The data on the card can be found in the device Manager (start – right-click on "Computer" - device Manager – display Adapters).
2
To determine the video memory you can also use third-party software. There is a little program CPU-Z that displays the properties of the CPU and graphics card. It will tell you exactly all the important data about the system and your computer hardware.
3
For users of Nvidia graphics cards there is a program RivaTuner. By installing it, you can view not only the main memory of the video card, but to change some of its parameters, in particular the rotational speed of the cooler, memory, and kernel.
Note
Carefully use the program RivaTuner, since its improper use can cause damage to the graphics card. Before installation read all the instructions and examine each item settings.

Advice 2: How to know the name of the video card

In the gaming and professional computers video card has an important place. Lovers of computer games and video choose the video card carefully before purchase. To know the name of the video card without disassembling the computer, is also possible.

Click on the label "Run" and in the line that appears type "dxdiag" (without the quotes), then click "OK". You will see a diagnostics computer, which is called DirectX. It contains information about manufacturers of physical security of the computer is called "hardware". This includes the video card. Go to the display tab and make sure that.
The main elements of the tab "Screen" section "Device":
Name - the full name of the graphics card, including the model and its number;

Manufacturer - Corporation, a manufacturer of graphics cards under their own label;

Type of chips - graphics processor which uses the graphics card.
Useful advice
The DirectX diagnostic tool also provides information about the total video card memory, screen mode, connected the monitor, drivers, and capabilities of the graphics card.

Advice 3: How to find out the frequency of the video card

Any modern discrete graphics card has its own frequency. Frequency has both the graphics adapter and its memory. The higher these numbers, the more powerful your graphics card. Also when overclocking the Board need to rely on the factory settings, memory frequency and CPU card and on this basis to deal with its acceleration.
How to find out the frequency of the video card
You will need
  • computer;
  • - Catalyst control center;
  • program RivaTuner.
Instruction
1
If you are owner of graphics card from ATI, it is likely that no additional programs you do not need. In the set of drivers for this graphics card includes the Catalyst control center. If you have not already installed, install it from the disk with the drivers. Also can download this software from the company website. You need to download one of the latest versions of the program.
2
Run Catalyst control center. If you start the program first, then select "Advanced" and proceed further. Then in the main program menu click on the upper arrow and in the menu that appears after this click ATI Overdrive. A window will appear in which two strips, which will be to the right of the number. Indicator is on the right near the top strip is the frequency of the processor card. The indicator near the bottom strips is the frequency of the video memory of the graphics card.
3
Also to know the frequency of operation of the video card using the program RivaTuner. This method is ideal for owners of graphics cards like ATI, and nVidia. The program RivaTuner can be easily found on the Internet. It is totally free, supported by Russian interface. Install the software on a hard disk of the computer.
4
Run RivaTuner. Then click on the arrow that is next to "Configure". There will be several icons. When you hover over the icon the mouse cursor, there inscription. Select the icon labeled "Diagnostic report". A window will appear, which will be divided into two parts. In the bottom of the window slide to the bottom. Now find the line "core Frequency". The indicator, which will correspond to this line is the frequency of the processor. Below is the string "memory Frequency". Accordingly, the index in this string is the memory frequency that runs your graphics card. If necessary, click on the diskette that is located below, you can save the report in a text document.

Advice 4: How to find video card information

Video card – an expansion card inside the computer, is designed to accelerate 3D graphics and image output to the monitor screen. The power of the graphics card depends on your computer's performance in 3D games. It is specially adapted for faster than using a CPU, generating 3D models and various special effects such as water reflection, transparency and lighting.
How to find video card information
You will need
  • The computer with the graphics card utility GPU-Z
Instruction
1
To get detailed information about installed in the computer video card, there is a special programm GPU-Z. It is free and does not require installation on your computer, displaying characteristics immediately after starting.
2
The program GPU-Z has multiple tabs. The first tab displays the Graphics Card information about the name of the video card and its characteristics. In the Name field, specify the manufacturer and model of the graphics card. The graphics processor is displayed in the GPU. You can determine the version of DirectX supported by your graphics hardware DirectX Support in the field.
3
Field Memory Size displays the amount of RAM on the video card, Memory Type – its type, Bus Width is the bus width graphics card, and Bandwidth is bandwidth. Block fields GPU Clock and Default Clock displays the current and factory default frequencies of GPU, memory and Shader processors respectively.
4
At the bottom of the Graphics Card tab located line Computing, which displays the supported graphics card computing technology. In it you can get information about technology-enabled distributed computing CUDA, physics simulation graphics card PhysX and others. If you hover the mouse on the desired technology, you will receive detailed information about its version, supported by the video card and the extent of its support.
5
The second tab, Sensors, displays information regarding load, temperature and current operation mode of the video card in real time. Here you can see the current frequency on which works GPU, memory and Shader processors in the same fields as the tab Graphics Card. In the field of GPU Temperature displays the current temperature of the GPU. In the Memory Used field displays the amount of used VRAM. The current loading of the graphics processor shown in the GPU Load.
6
You can take a screenshot of the displayed features or condition of the graphics card by clicking a small camera icon in the upper right corner, as well as learn information about the load on the graphics card and its temperature in the course of the game. To do this, select the check boxes for Log to File and Continue refreshing this screen while GPU-Z is in background tab Sensors.
