If your vid. card was good enough for you to play doom 3, you would know what you have. And BTW, don't trust system requirements on boxes. you would need 3x more then what it asks you in order to play the game with no lag on reasonable res. and quality.

For future reference the easiest way to know your system specs (for me atleast) without rummaging for the manuals and stuff is

goto my computer, right click, properties, hardware, device manager. From here you can check out your video card, processor, sound card, etc. etc. Thats just me I guess.
