i guess the easiest way is to download cpu-z or pc wizard, they should tell you the model, then you can look it up on the manufacturers website and find out everything you need to know,,,

E6300 Core 2 Duo
2 Gbs OCZ PLatinum 800Mhz
250 Gb Western Digital
OCZ Modsteam 450W
7900GT Gainward
Flux Capacitor....SWEEEET

As long as its socket 939 or AM2 it will work. If the board is pre X2, just install a new BIOS.
