Just got a new to me computer and have a few questions. Apparently it has on board video, I just cant seem to find out how much. It's not under "this PC" where the cpu and ram are listed. Anyone know where to find it? The OS is win 10.

2nd question: Do they make "slim" video cards? My GT 430 1gb seems to be too wide.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Use Belarc Advisor it's free for personal use and it is amazingly detailed.

It is a program that you download and install. It reports the data right to your default browser.

I use CPUID. Is what you linked more detailed you think?

This is what I have support.hp.com...

That answered one question: I need to get a low profile video card.

Win10 I assume? Go to the search bar and paste this in, dxdiag. It will tell you everything about your PC's hardware.

aida64 is what you should get its free. www.aida64.com...
will give you all the details you need and more.

but it seems you have Intel hd 2000 if you have a core i5.

Also what you want is a single slot GPU.

Good luck, onboard GPU are straight trash, especially with how much video ram you go there.

dxdiag is not a thing anymore? How about display adapter under the device manager?
