Users can determine their specific type of video card in many ways, including using the device manager, using a third party program, inspecting the computer's boot screen and performing a visual inspection of the computer interior. While each method works well, checking the device manager is the easiest method.
Windows users can right click on their video card under "Device Manager" and get all pertinent details about it. They may also install a third-party program to help them determine the specific video card. If they reboot the computer, they may be able to read the card information when the system boots back up. Finally, users can open their computers and look for identifying information on the motherboard or video card.
