If you want to know some of the details about your video card, like what the previous post said, you can use the “dxdiag” utility or the DirectX Diagnostic Tool to display the specifications or properties of your video card. To try this, click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories”, and then select “Command Prompt”. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “dxdiag” then hit Enter.

Wait until the tool completely loads then select “Display” tab. You should see the details on your video card like the video card chipset type, amount of video RAM, DAC type, video card manufacturer, and others.

Aside from using the built-in DirectX Diagnostic Tool, you can also use CPU-Z. It is a free application that collects information on several of the main devices on your system like the processor name and number, process, package, codename, cache levels, and more; motherboard and chipset; memory type, size, SPD or module specifications, timings, and more; and real-time measurement of the internal frequency of every core, memory frequency, and more.

To check the properties of your video card, in CPU-Z, select “Graphics” tab. It may show you some other useful information about your video card.
