  • Click the Start button and choose Run
  • Type "dxdiag" without the quotes then press OK

If you receive a message related to checking for whql signatures, choose Yes.

On the first tab, system, you can find the following information pertinent to game requirements:

  • Operating System
  • Processor
  • Memory

On the display tab (Under 'Device' on the left):

  • Name - The name given to the card by the manufacturer, this will usually, but not always contain information on the chip type it uses
  • Manufacturer - The company who manufactured the card
  • Chip type - The information in this section needs to match the videocard type specified on the game's minimum specification found on the packaging
  • Approx total memory - The amount of video memory.  With onboard videocards, this may be shared with the system memory

On the display tab (Under 'Driver' on the right):

  • Version - The software installed controlling the videocard
  • Date - This gives an indication of how up to date your videocard software is.  A more current date is more beneficial in running games on a PC
