Question New Alienware M11x question

Hey guys I just got like just received my new laptop and have been looking around and I don't think this has a video card. I was looking to try and find one but have been unsuccessful. Can you please tell me if there's anywhere it will tell me if I have one, thanks.

Get GPU-Z and post up a screenshot.

Edit CPU-Z won't show the graphics card.

BTW, the only Alienware worth getting is the M11X. What you get for your money is best served. All other Alienwares are way overpriced.

All im saying is you can get a 15.6 screen with better specs then the m11x for like 100 dollars less and also cpu-z does show the graphics card well for mine at least.

There's a tab on GPU-Z and it shows my NVIDIA GT 540M. How would I use this card instead of built in graphics?

I think your already using it the intel graphics one has 0 in its core clock and the gt 540m core clock is 672 so that means it must be running i think
