Default Identify My Graphics Card?

Is there any way I can identify the brand/model/make of my graphics card? I got the computer from a friend, but he forgot what card it was...

Is it plugged in or not?

yes everest can work, but if it dont, take the card out, and look at every word, letter, and symbol that looks like it might be a serial or model number. any strings of letters/numbers you see, google them, and chances are you might find it. (this is how i found out that i had a 3dfx voodoo3 2000, and a 3com 10/100 NIC)

another good program that works is syspec, and sometimes powerstrip can identify your display adapter too.
